PERFECT PUMPKIN PIE
 
 
The Long Island Cheese Pumpkin, sometimes called a Cinderella pumpkin, is related to butternut squash.
It is our pick for pumpkin desserts!

To make pumpkin purée:
Cut the cheese pumpkin in half; scoop out the seeds and dry them to plant next year. Cut one of the halves into 3- by 4-inch chunks and microwave for 12 minutes until soft. (Reserve other half for another use.) Using a spoon, separate the cooked flesh from the skin (you should have about 2 cups of flesh for the pie). Put the cooked flesh into a food processor or blender and blend until it is a smooth puree. Use as you would store-bought pumpkin purée.

 Think Ahead to Spring with Houseplants,  Daffodil & Tulip Bulbs
 
 
 
 
-Hilary Armour, Garden Center Manager,
has some great tips for houseplants-
 
 
 
 
    So your plants have been basking in the wonderful Nantucket sun all summer and now its time to bring them in…but when and how?  The first thing to do is spray them with Horticultural oil, Neem oil or Insecticidal soap.
You may not see them, but I guarantee your plant has hitchhikers! What often happens is when you bring in your plants, the bugs come in too, and then your plant is the ONLY host and populations explode.
Two thorough treatments of either product will clean your plant up nicely.
Make sure to clean off all dead leaves, branches or flowers. If the plant has had a good growth year, this is a great time to re-pot!  Do not fertilize, as your plant is most likely going to go into “rest” mode and will not need too much fertilizer. Some plants will shed leaves when they move indoors (usually this is due to light issues, the plant isn’t getting enough to support all that foliage). Maintain a regular watering schedule and settle in with your plant for the winter.  THINK SPRING!
 
 
 
 
 
Just because the weather has begun to turn cooler, it doesn't mean it's time to stop gardening- on the contrary, it's time to start planning for spring bloom by planting bulbs! Planting bulbs is the best way to extend the bloom life of your garden.

Bulbs should be planted in a sunny, well-drained location. Don't overlook a spot that seems shady in the fall. Remember that deciduous trees (trees that have leaves and not needles) will drop their leaves in the fall and not leaf out again until late spring allowing enough sun for bulbs to grow and bloom.
~~~~
Bulbs should be planted pointy side up- You might be able to see roots on the bottom side of the bulb. If you really can't tell which end is up, don't worry about it, the bulb will figure it out on its own.
~~~~
Bulbs should be planted at a depth of 2 to 3 times their diameter- For Daffodils that's about 6-8 inches below the soil. Smaller bulbs like Crocus should be planted to a depth of approximately 3-4 inches.
~~~~
Water your bulbs after planting to settle the loose dirt around the bulb and then sit back, relax, and have some hot cocoa while you are waiting for spring.
 
 
 
 
For Your Seasonal Table...
 
 
 
 
Fall is all about colorful displays of pumpkins, gourds, & cranberries. Pair cozy, natural textures with clean white porcelain,  handmade ceramic ware, and rustic tin & wooden baskets from our gift department.
