The word pumpkin derives from the Greek word pepon, which means "large melon". Thus you could think of the Pumpkin babies as little melons.

What a lot of work went into creating this pumpkin baby!

Are you able to determine the celebrity character shown by Will and Guy? [above] These pumpkins have been carved by gardener David Finkle
Rather than carving out the traditional sinister smiles on his prized fruit for Halloween, gardener David Finkle is busy carving out the faces of his favourite stars for decorative "jack-o'-lanterns." David, 30, has carved out the faces of X Factor judge Simon Cowell, glamour model Jordan and Prime Minister, Gordon Brown on the fruits of his labours which grow on his small holding in Chelmsford, Essex, England.
Other celebrity pumpkins he has completed include singer Amy Winehouse, Manchester United and England soccer player, Wayne Rooney, Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole, Michael Jackson and US president Barak Obama. [see below]
The secret of making a good savoury pumpkin pie is to use as little pumpkin as possible! Just retain the shell to give the illusion of a Pumpkin Pie! Let me explain, pumpkin is pretty tasteless, thus replace the flesh with your favorite food.
If you like savoury dishes such as rice then make a tasty risotto, and use it to fill the pumpkin; should your preference be for curry, then stuff the pumpkin with a chicken masala. For those who like chili - see here for ideas.
Once you have added your favorite dish into the pumpkin shell, cook in the oven as normal. 30 minutes at 450 °F is a good starting point. Put back in the oven if the dish needs more cooking. The skill of this technique is to select the size of pumpkin to match the number of people you wish to feed.
Traditional Sweet Pumpkin Pie Recipe
For a more traditional cinnamon and ginger Pumpkin Pie, here is a recipe.
A co-worker asked Abegale, 'What is it like to be a Christian?'
Abegale replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'
This was passed on to us by another pumpkin called Joe Muise. We liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in our patch. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.
It is true that, after we have carved it, most of the pumpkin ends up in the bin. In fact, in the USA, where Halloween has spawned a multibillion dollar industry, it is estimated that more than 90% of pumpkins that are grown are never eaten.
Will and Guy feel that this wastefulness is a pity.
1. Firstly, these gourds are very tasty. Not many things are more
comforting than a good pumpkin soup.
We have discovered that the smaller varieties offer the best flavour. The football-sized Jack-o-lantern pumpkins that most of us buy to carve are usually Howden Fields, Hundredweight or Connecticut Fields. The truly massive pumpkins grown to show, some weigh up to half a tonne, are Atlantic Giants, typically. If you want a variety to cook and sculpt, try Jack of all Trades, Jaspee de Vendee or Baby Bear.
Or perhaps you may choose to use beetroots or turnips to sculpt out the 'souls of the dead', just as the Irish did before emigrants discovered pumpkins on arriving in the USA.
Once you are finished with the hollowed-out skin, compost it, or do as Martha Stewart does: cut it into two halves, fill it with seeds and hang up as giant bird feeders.
