Even more impressive storage

As impressive as the tomatoes have been, the 'Seminole' pumpkins have them beat. I harvested these around October 2017! So, after a year and several months, it's just amazing to me that they're still okay. I will admit that they're not as sweet after such extended storage time, but otherwise they're certainly acceptable for cooking. I noticed as I cut them, that a wax was noticeable along the cuts. I scratched some up with my fingernail to see how easily it might be collected. I'll bet this wax is one of the main reasons why these pumpkins stay so fresh for so long.

Even with the sugars having been used up, they seem to have full coloration (beta carotene), and should still be good dietary source of potassium and fiber.

  1. As reported by Stanford Medical, It's really the ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years more and weigh on average 42 pounds lighter than us.

    (Just so you know, it has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and really, EVERYTHING related to "how" they eat.)

    P.S, I said "HOW", and not "what"...
