Happy Halloween!

We love to get pictures of our pumpkins, carved by our customers!  We met Alexandra through Facebook, she had seen some info on the 'Stock the Food Bank's Pantry' and posted on our Wall that she was so happy to find a great way to donate to the Food Bank.  She and her partner arrived at  Saturday's market with a very generous donation!  We had a great time with her and her partner (whose name I cannot remember, to my great chagrin); introducing them to all our different potato varieties and all  the types of squash laid out.  They actually had to leave to find a banking machine they were so enthusiastic about all the good food!  They left loaded with goodies, including two of our nice carving pumpkins.   We asked for pictures, as is our habit, but they wouldn't promise as they hadn't carved a pumpkin in years!  Well,   the proof is in the pictures and these two have talent!   Love it!

 To everyone: Have a scary, spooky and safe evening!


  1. I'm really impressed with all the relief carving I keep seeing on pumpkins lately. What a talent. I love carving pumpkins but I'm pretty old school just cutting out triangles to make a face.

  2. Hi, just wanted to give a little update, the pumpkins were a success! The little ones enjoyed Mike Wazowski from Monster Inc. & the adults really liked our Yoda. Not too bad for our first try. We had so much fun that I think we will make more carvings next year & new characters, so you will be seeing us again next Halloween…and surely sooner than that ;) Oh, and my dear husband’s name is Joel :) Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

  3. Marguerite, the first year of the blog, three years ago, we posted Farmer Man's pumpkin which was indeed classic triangles! Our customers are pretty talented!

    Alexandra, we certainly hope to see you and Joel before next Halloween!
