You all know that I love the gorkin. Ah, you may have forgotten what a gorkin is. They are growing right now in my backyard- a hodgepodge melting pot of genetics that occurs when we throw last years pumpkins, decorative squash and gourds together and let 'em cross-pollinate to their hearts content. Mudbloods, if you will.
Our official gorkin harvest is scheduled for this Sunday, after church.
I will admit to helping the overall genetics of the gorkin patch each year with the addition of healthy, new strains of pure-blood pumpkins. I always buy my pumpkins from the same roadside stand down the street from the barn.
