The fabled BLUE Pumpkin? Does it really exist? Have you ever seen a packet of BLUE Pumpkin seeds in a garden shop?
We think they really do exist.
Grown to smile, eerily, one Halloween night –
Now THAT would be a truly frightful sight.
So undercover of our new aquaponics unit, we will see
if we can find some seeds and throw some light on this fabled blue variety.
“There’s a blue strain of carrot – potato too,
for a totally ghoulish vegetable stew.
Chop them all up and put in a pot
then bring to the boil with some trouble and toil.
Close the mix tight in a hay box at dawn
till the taste of the darkness within, that’s unborn,
gets released to the night as you open the door –
and forget all your fears as you ask for some more.”
