Lady Godiva rides again!
No, really, that is the name of the pumpkins we grow for the seeds. The seeds of Lady Godiva pumpkins are hull-less like the ones you can buy from whole food shops. I harvested some today, cutting the pumpkin in half and squidgeing out the seeds from the pulpy insides. The seeds I will dry gently next to the stove or in the solar dryer (if the sun shines) The flesh isn't great to eat but can be made into curry's etc or in our case cooked in the oven and fed to the poultry. The seeds are said to be high in zinc and very good for you!
