My wife has a kitchen garden where she grows strangely shaped and vividly coloured varieties of vegetables. These are some rouge vif d’Etampes pumpkins which, as the name suggests, are redder than your average pumpkin. On winning first prize for them in the local show, she was a grinning triumph for days. Here they are immortalised. Happy Hallowe’en!
