In Genesis Chapter 1 God details how He created the earth, and everything in it. He is the Creator of all plants
and all animals. Creator of squash, pumpkins, gourds, corn, and straw! And people can use these.
We can choose to use His plants to bring glory to His name.
At the Pumpkin Festival we teach that God made the pumpkin, that it is a healthy vegetable, as well as a
colorful fall decoration. God has blessed us with these wonderful vegetables, that keep well in winter time and
provide important nutrition. The pilgrims and early settlers of America were grateful to have pumpkins to eat, and
other things did not store well. Pumpkins were a dietary mainstay...and were part of the Thanksgiving tradition from
Here, at Shepherd's Cross, we thank the Lord for the harvest of vegetables of every conceivable variety. God
is the author of the harvest. Join us in rejoicing in the bounty of His blessings!
Look for our pumpkin recipes when you come to the patch this year. There are many uses for this wonderful
vegetable, and we sell all kinds for both decoration and delicious pies, breads, soups...even snacks!
