Pumpkin Fair





On Sunday 2nd November,(KRM)Ltd/Manikata farmers with the help of the Institute of Tourism organised a 'Pumpkin Fair' to celebrate a product that grows in abundance along the Ghajn Tuffieha - Xemxija Valley. The product is harvested in late August and is then placed on rooftops or along the walls of water reservoirs to ripen in the mild Autumn Sun.
Amongst a display of pumpkins there were stalls selling pumpkin pies, cakes and cupcakes, typical local food including Manikata wine, sun dried tomatoes, honey, carob syrup and organic olive oil.

I don't see many bright orange pumpkins but I do see lots of green ones. It must be the climate.
