Pumpkin carving

Pumpkin warehouse

A couple of weeks ago, Kayla and I headed over to the Punkin Patch Farm for a girls' day out. I'd never seen so many pumpkins in one place! Baby D. chose a tiny one just the right size to toss from her stroller, Kayla chose a white one, and I stuck to plain old orange.

Jack O'Lantern

I hadn't carved a jack o'lantern in about twenty years, so the result wasn't particularly artistic. Once I stuck in a candle I'd found floating down the creek, though, my supposed Green Man at least turned into a menacing face --- close enough!

Corn maze

Thanks for spurring on yet another round of fun, Kayla! Swinging bridges this week?

I thought the white pumpkins were wierd new varieties but it turns out that some of them are tasty heirlooms, if you want to think about adding a new food to the garden, you could try eating a white pumpkin.
