Pumpkin and Pumpkin Seeds

Q: Is Pumpkin a vegetable or fruit?

A pumpkin is a winter squash plant. Cucurbita pepo is the most common pumpkin.
They are round with a smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and most often they are orange.

A: Pumpkin is a FRUIT because it’s an edible seed-bearing structure of a flowering plant. Many fruits that are not sweet, like tomatoes, beans, green peppers, avocados, etc. are mistakenly called vegetables.

Hollowed Out Pumpkin (with seeds and pulp removed)

Pumpkin, when sliced and cut, can be roasted, puréed into soup or baked into pies.
The pumpkin seeds are also edible and highly nutritious.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds!
Separate seeds from pulp using a colander and a bowl. The seeds float. Clear the pulp. Rinse seeds and pat dry (as dry as possible). Combine in a bowl with olive oil and salt.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place seeds on foil or on a sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
Spice as desired. (We used curry-ginger-cayenne-salt-brown sugar on these)

Smokin Deals Custom Glass & More

Smokin Deals Custom Glass & More (Smoke Shop) in Ashland, Oregon

There’s a new smoke shop (head shop) on Main Street in Ashland, Oregon! When we were last in town they hadn’t opened yet, so this time we thought we should check them out.

We walked past and stuck our head in the door on our way between Starbuck’s and the Village Bakery (see the previous Master Blog) and a dog barked at us! We came back and went in to explore the store and met Bear behind the counter:

Rolling Papers?

In the front of the store is a nice selection of the typical “Hippie” clothing, t-shirts, hats, bags, e-cigarettes, incense and other accessories:

However, the GOOD STUFF is in the back room!

The GOOD STUFF is in the Back Room!

Under Construction!

They were “under construction” in the back room when we visited but they still had more custom glass smoking pieces than I’ve ever seen in one paraphenalia store…

Pipes, Bongs, Waterpipes, Dab Rigs, Hookahs, Vaporizers, More Pipes, More Bongs, etc…

Most of the Good Stuff is made for them by local artists and they make their own stuff too. There’s a great selection of glass art, styles, colors, sizes, variety and item prices available.
