Decorating commences!!

Time to start pulling the stuff from the attic and basement and get this place whipped up into Halloween shape. Before we could get started, I needed to build another corner cabinet to hold our growing collection of stuff. Now we can get serious.

Pumpkin family picture

Got all of our pumpkins picked now and set them out to cure. I learned that after picking they should sit in the sun for up to two weeks to cure and harden the outer skin. Seems to be working. Our biggest pumpkin this year weighed in at a wopping 48.2 pounds! Not huge by any standards, but for us that is far beyond the 10 pounders we got in the past. Lots of carving on the schedule now.



Also decided to make another group prop from a 10$ walmart skeleton for the fireplace hearth. Happy with the way it turned out. Did not really want to use my Pumpkinrot jack in it, but after putting him there, it looked right and so at home.

It's harvest time

Looks like the pumpkin patch of 2013 is finally at a close. This year we managed to get 8 very good sized pumpkins, by far the best crop ever. Hell if I know why, but never the less happy about it. We still have 3 left to orange up, but as for the other five they are ready to pick. I am a bit hesitant to pick them as we never had a crop ready this early. If anybody has tips to how to keep them fresh till Halloween please pass it on. Not sure if I should leave them on the vine or not.
