    Welcome to our country!

    As to the pumpkin soup leather, the more recently processed food, pumpkin soup and lentil soup, was more like shards, not leathery in any ways.
    I think it would need some food engineer to produce exactly soup leather stuff.

    Sorry for that, and thanks for any correction.

    Yes, I used the word "pumpkin" for all those bulbous fruits we are growing here.
    I think you were fine using it that way, I was just clarifying some. I have had some surprise fruits growing on what I was expecting to be butternut squash and zucchini. Squash hybridize pretty easily and when I went looking for possible parents for my plants I started seeing that types of what we refer to as squash were being called pumpkins.

    Years ago when we started growing pumpkins (or squashs) the next year there grew by itself a hybrid that looked like a zuccini and tasted like a pumpkin.

    We stopped harvesting seeds for re-use, and would not have eaten any self-growing pumpkin any more because we were educated that some homes grow a sort of decoration-pumpkin thats poisonous and can carry the poison into a hybrid plant.

    Santa made a wise choice. Would love to hear next fall if they did well in Austria.

    Yes, I bet they will do great.

    I was in Graz for business, but it was a great trip, what I think of as beautiful “foothill” country before you get to the real mountains, with interesting history including the armory museum.
