Fall Foliage

Different kinds of trees turn different colors in the fall. Hickory trees turn yellow.





Pumpkins are a symbol of fall. Some people carve jack o' lanterns for Halloween by cutting out a face on the pumpkin. I like to leave mine whole!

  • I like eat pumpkins and it’s let me think about my grandmother. Because my grandmother has planted the pumpkins in countryside. When I was young, I like to go to my grandmother’s house in sourthern Taiwan. Her house with a large farmland, then she can plant a lot kinds of vegetable. I like pumpkin a lot, and we usually cook it with ricenoodles. But, I just can cook it in a simple way, for example, bake it in a oven!! Actually, I would like to get some different way in how to cook pumpkins.

  • Americans like to use pumpkins for decoration more than they like to eat them. Although pumpkin pie is a traditional Thanksgiving dessert, many people don't care for it. Some people like pumpkin bread or cake, too. However, pumpkin is more versatile than we think. I found this website with a lot of different receipes, some savory: http://www.clemson.edu/fieldops/CGS/hallow3.htm

    A "sugar pumpkin" is a small eating pumpkin. The larger jack o' lantern kinds may not make such good eating.

  • Wow !! Thank you for your information, teacher Nina! I will try to cook the orange-pumpkin pudding. In the past, I used to cook pumpkin soup with some vegetable, such as cabbage, and celery. I think it is not a kind of vegetable but a symbol in Halloween.

    Also, your pictures of the leaves turning yellow are very beautiful!
