Waiting for the Great Pumpkin?

With apologies to Charles Schultz (and Linus). Unlike Godot, the (relatively) Great Pumpkin has arrived in Carwoola. It also brought some relatives of various sizes and complexions,with it. The images below show the assembled mass.

We waited for the first frost before harvesting. This did not actually appear on our purchased thermometer, which is sheltered under the verandah, but was very evident from the reaction of our basil plants (RIP) .

The sizes can be best ascertained from the one below in which my stomach is offered as a metric. Note also the nice Autumn colours (or indeed Fall colors) on the pin-oak!
