|Just about ripe|
Never fear, but it did! And yesterday was the day that we sliced into this bad boy. It was time to carve a Jack 'o Lantern!

The crafty Momma that I am, no way are we going to let those yummy bits go to waste. Time to get scooping!
but sometimes only your hand will do to get right in there! Get digging!
And here we have the remains of the day

Don't expect me to share my seasonal seeds with you though. I am a bit of a Halloween hog, when it comes to my pumpkin seeds. You'll have to carve your own pumpkin and make your own roasted seeds this week.
