This year, we grew "jack-o-lanterns" in our garden. The pumpkin vines swarmed our garden and stole water from our lawn (we have a dead spot in the lawn adjacent to the garden to prove it), but in the end, we were pleased to have four nice pumpkins to show for it.
One rainy Friday afternoon, Sam, ND, and I decided it was high time to carve our pumpkins since it was only a week til Halloween. We donned our aprons and Sam carefully drew plans for pumpkin faces out on paper. ND dictated what she wanted hers to look like and Sam patiently drew a face out for her as well. We were ready to carve pumpkins!
