Time to make pumpkin men as in " snowmen " made of pumpkins. Razz Laughing Out Loud

Actually anybody make snowmen cutting targets or would that just really disturb the neighbours or make them think you are disturbed ? Eek! Sort of reminds me of the " Calvin & Hobbes " comic strip of a few years ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_and_Hobbes

Snowmen:

Quote:
Wikepedia:
Calvin is also very talented at building snowmen, but he usually puts them in grotesque, horrific scenes that depict the snowmen dying or suffering in obscene ways (e.g., a snowman screaming with a tree growing through it, a snowman that has been cut in half by another snowman on a toboggan, a giant snow-squid devouring a crowd of snowmen, etc.). Such creations usually bring swift discipline from Calvin's parents. For example, after his mother sees him build a snowman bowling with another snowman's head, Calvin is summoned to the house, leaving him to remark to Hobbes, "First she says go out, now she says come in." In a notable storyline, Calvin builds a snowman and brings it to life using the power "invested in him by the mighty and awful Snow Demons." The snowman immediately proves to be evil (reminiscent of Frankenstein's monster) and becomes what Calvin calls a "deranged mutant killer monster snow goon." This storyline gave the title to the Calvin and Hobbes book Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons. In the end, Calvin succeeds in freezing the Snowgoons with a water hose, though he is caught by his parents and punished for leaving the house at night.

Snow men as cool headed adversaries is something I've often thought about but never tried. :-)

...and what do you do with the spoils. Do you use it as a good base for soup, give it to the pigs, enrichen the compost heap????

I have a real test for cutting whatever. There still is a wall of entagled trees of 4 metres high, 15 deep and 30 wide damming our river. I am both clearing it and chopping it for firewood.
Bring ánything; seax, two-hander or battle-axe. The construction is a mass off stick ranging from fingerthick to chestsize so you can choose your measure Laughing Out Loud

Scoop up guts, rake off seeds into bowl, wash seeds. Mix up some water with about as much salt as you can get to dissolve in it, soak seeds for a few hours, then spread on parchment paper and bake in a 150 degree oven for about an hour.

Yummy.
