Samuel's pumpkin and why I don't eat pumpkins.

Samuel planted the pumpkin seeds and from the vine and he got two pumpkins. Not bad for a first time gardener. The bigger one was actually the second one that grew. I took it to school, and the kids had fun enacting Cinderella.

I don't eat pumpkins, and people don't understand. I am a grandchild of World War two. My parents said they had to eat so much in the war, with no salt or oil. They were scared of it.

When we were in primary school, Dad and Mum drove us to school. We drove over a bridge. There were many barges laden with pumpkins. Dad said they were for pigs.

This is why I don't eat pumpkins no matter how delicious it is.
