First Carves Of The Season!

Jack O Lanterns.  Pumpkin Carving.  Grinning  Jacks.  I don’t care what you call them, I just love doing it each year!   This year we picked up over a 1,000lbs of pumpkins and I’m not even kidding.  They made us drive over to the truck scale and weigh everything.  lol  The folks at Schuh Farm were awesome as always, and gave me a generous discount because I’m a pumpkin junkie.

And here they are, all lined up on the porch, just waiting to be sacrificed:

I picked the pumpkin with the super long stem because he had a little spot that I was worried might turn into rot.
