The first of the crop of pumpkins from my front yard garden was carved last night. Four more will follow. This guy was first for a particular reason. I had discovered that my local pub was encouraging people to donate jack-o-lanterns to its Halloween display in preparation for Halloween weekend. So eager were they to gather a large collection of pumpkins that they were offering two drinks and an appetizer to each person who contributed a jack-o-lantern.
That's all I needed to hear. As much as I love my little pumpkin crop, I love Finbars' nachos more. He looked happy in his new home.
