Pumpkin Galore

Plant a pumpkin in a depression surrounded by chillies, zucchinis, aubergines, eggplants, courgettes and squashes. All of these need to be somewhat close to each other. As the pumpkin begins to grow, cut small holes in it, and insert scrubbed (and lightly frisked with steel wool) freshly fruiting zucchinis, chillis and small squashes, ensuring a tight fit, and then sealing the opening with wax.

As the collaboration begins to grow together, the wax will fall off and the holes will seal.

Some time later build a big bonfire, and likewise, a big pit. Place the coals from the bonfire in the pit, and then extract the organisms from their moorings, and place it in the pit, wrapping it with banana leaves.

Cover with dirt and let sit for one full day.

Pumpkin Galore!

Okay, I get it now. It's a cultural thingy [blissmiss, Jun 23 2014]

       This is one very strange idea. That's all I'm gonna say for now. Strange, by golly.
blissmiss, Jun 22 2014
  

       Ah, OK, the intent is to produce a sort of pumpkin- aubergine-wax stew cooked inside the pumpkin skin.   

       I think, in order to be palatable, one would need to include a little salt, butter and some animals.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 22 2014
  

       No, don't include the animals in this mess. It might harm them. Superhero's that's what this needs.
blissmiss, Jun 22 2014
  

       I think that any animal you're going to eat is probably going to come to harm. The exceptions would be tapeworms, cryptosporidium, and their ilk.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 22 2014
  

       How do you avoid also harming the plants?
pocmloc, Jun 22 2014
  

       Hmmm, got me there. Any ideas?
blissmiss, Jun 22 2014
  

       You don't but if you play music and stroke them; they will be alright.
mylodon, Jun 23 2014
  

       Actually; what is better is to insert a small ultrasonic emitter. These have been reduced in size. You could conceivably insert one.   

       Ultrasound makes bones heal faster and plants grow taller; unfortunately more spindly and sparse. So you'd modulate your ultrasonic tunes to keep your plants happy and then my god when they aren't looking; dinner time.

       There should be an eatable material that can contain salt until heat degrades it. As for butter um... There is probably a margarine that will be safe to eat after a few months inside a plant.
Voice, Jun 23 2014
  

       [Voice] EATABLE??? WTF IS EATABLE??? EAT A TABLE?   

       oh my, it's Monday isn't it.
blissmiss, Jun 23 2014
  

       Margarine is never safe to eat no matter how many months you leave it.
pocmloc, Jun 23 2014
  

       By growing cucumbers and squash in proximity once we grew squashcumbers - you may run the same risk.   

       They were inedible but could have starred in a bad monster movie.

       So, like a Vegetarian Turducken? Then it's a recipe, well almost. Zuchchilkin?
