Pumpkin Flower Patties

My neighbor gathers these flowers and uses them to make fried patties similar to our Swiss Chard Patties but sweeter. I have never made these but my neighbor has shared hers with me. You do not have to wilt these flowers just chop them up and make them the same way you do the Swiss Chard Patties.

Pumpkin Plants

Another great bread made from the garden is Pumpkin Bread. This spicy blend is another variation of uses for that traditionally Fall vegetable. In Summer, pumpkins start out with big yellow flowers like the ones pictured. This is what my neighbor harvests for her sweet pumpkin patties.
