I should've stuck my hand in there for a scale reference, they are really HUGE! Bigger than my thumb!!
And quite a meaty treat for the chooks, it suddenly occurred to me.
After making our way eagerly to the chook pen and tossing them in, we waited in wonder to see what would happen next...
All it took was one girl to mosey on over and sniff out the goods, selecting her prize grub....
..and within 30 seconds the rest of them had caught sight of the unexpected feast.
It was indeed a grub-fest of the most speedy proportions (hence the outrageously blurry pic).
It's nice to know that these enormous grubs will be returned to us in the form of gorgeous, golden yolked eggs.
On another splitting matter, one of my pumpkins decided to do just that this week:
Bugger! What to do with it?
The split reached right inside the cavity within. I decided to cook it up that night and even if a little on the immature side, it made a satisfying pumpkin soup.
And just because - this is the road I travel on twice a day which I just had to share in all of it's Autumnal glory.
It really takes my breath away this time of year!
