Halloween is huge here in Utah. People start decorating for Halloween on September 1, which seems weird to me. It was mid-October before we even got our pumpkin, which might tell you how bah-humbug I am.
But I love this pumpkin. Mostly I love the crazy stem. We got it at the farmer's market instead of at the grocery store or those silly pumpkin patches where pumpkins magically appear as if they grew there. (I know they didn't because I drive past them all the time - they're grass year-round.) I know we paid more for it, but I think it's worth it for this great stem.
What are your plans this Halloween?
