It’s Halloween time! It’s when pumpkins can become people (with and without bodies), people can become whatever they like, and all gourds come to life. It can be complicated, trying to figure out what all the pumpkins and others are thinking and saying, but leave it to me. I’ve been listening and watching, and I also speak a little calabaza, so I can help translate. I wager it’ll be entertaining, but if by the end you’re gourd to death, then, well, I think it worked out too.
Lettuce scare you!
With our pointy plastic heads.
Haha! That was a good one! Makes me happy and feel all warm inside.
Laugh all you want… You don’t have to wear these overalls everyday.
Cheese, pumpkins can be so cranky sometimes.
My last soul-sucking job made me cranky too… So I decided to leave and BRANCH out into other goblinry.
Well that’s acorn-y one.
Speak for yourself, the quality of that one made me green with envy.
I butternut comment or another squash is gonna make fun of me… But aren’t you guys really blue?
True, true… You’re blue, orange you?
I’m sensing a fight… En gourd!
Okay enough of that silly stuff… Does this picture make my butt look big?
Let’s hang out in my cupboard.
It’s okay, I know… They should have been more Delicata.
I think it’s time to HEAD out to the party, meet some new squash… What are you going to dress up as?
Me?… I’m going to be a pumpkin.
Love the pics you posted.
Thanks, I took a few of them around Princeton and Lambertville and many of them at a farm stand in Hunterdon County, and then there are the pumpkins we carved at my brother’s place.
