The air is crisp and cool, the light is casting long dramatic shadows,

and everyone is looking elegant in their winter coats, scarves and sweaters

Even the Galeux d’Eysines winter squash is wearing it’s seemingly fuzzy sweater.

The translation is slightly less elegant, meaning “’embroidered with warts”

So let’s just call it a sweater, shall we?


Besides, it’s whats on the inside that really counts right,

and inside this beauty is sweet, orangey, pumpkiny, squash-meat.
