    I haven't named many, but I'm starting to think I should. I have a mannequin who's Seth, because he looks just like one of older DD's friends by that name. I've been working on a male torso that I'm in the process of transforming into an entire figure. So far I've thought of him as "Manchester" (to differentiate him from the female torsos waiting to become parts of props). It remains to be seen whether the name will stick.

    Our witch is Hagetha, the pumpkin king is Jack Crowe and our corpse in the toe pincher coffin is Cleatus Wormwood.

    I just heard that on the radio this afternoon. I was very surprised, because I always thought of the peeper as a pretty benignly creepy prop. My guests got a huge kick out of him. I guess where I live, an actual window peeper would be likely to get his face full of bird shot, so there's more surprise factor than intimidation factor. It's pretty sexist to assume the peeper has to be male and has to be peeping only at females. I think of mine as an equal opportunity voyeur of the "pull...

    Popularity is growing... And it is mainly for adults, that like to wear scary dresses and have fun with friends. I had my own first party when I was about 12 or so. I saw some halloween episode in TV and was sold. :D

    Good point-- bringing in an entry is a win in itself. I grew Bat Wing last year too. I got a few decent ones, but overall they didn't wow me. Though I know bush types are great for some people's conditions, I generally have more trouble with them than I do with vining types. The dense bushes shade the underneath leaves and restrict air flow, making for more fungal and mildew problems. The tight leaf canopy often hides the flowers from pollinators. (Our bees tend to look for flowers in sunny...

    I'm over my head, though I won't yet say I'm completely hosed. Sept is when I should have cleaned out much of the day-to-day normal decor to make way, and when I should have dragged out and organized supplies and Halloween decor. Instead our family went away on vacation for the first half the month. When we got back, I had a week to prepare a customer appreciation dinner we host every year, and to make food all the food for 200 people (pulled pork roasts, meatballs in gravy, mashed...

    Great idea-- that should be a blast! And it will be interesting to see what other people come up with. I've exhibited at our local county fair before and really enjoyed it, but I've never exhibited at the MN State Fair (not since my 4-H days, anyway). You're right, it should be fun to share your exhibit with friends and family. I hope you'll get a picture of Tommy Boy up on his stage!

    I know! Those little pumpkins and decorative gourds are ridiculous here this year, too! We do a customer appreciation event every year (most recently, last week) and I asked DH to pick up some gourds for the tables. The best price he could get, from a grower, was 5 for $4. :mad: Like you said, WK, those were recently 3/$1. I'm still glad I didn't pick my own to use, though. People were letting their kids take them after the dinner, and if they'd have been ones I grew, I'd have been...

    For pumpkin fans, a few vacation photos, on topic. Oregon, a couple days ago. Shock and horror at the prices on plain, ordinary pumpkins. Maybe I'm spoiled. I was shocked that our locals have gone up to $4 this year (though one can get them cheaper at produce auctions or from local hobby growers.) OK-- just too much trouble trying to edit when the pictures don't show up. The first was a bin of pumpkins for $6.99 each. That's a lot more than we pay for mid sized, somewhat imperfect run of...

    These are from the beginning of the month; the immatures have made some progress since the photos. Above is probably a pumpkin crossed with an acorn squash. I had some small decorative gourds like that last year, but this one is almost a foot & a half long! I have a couple of these. They're quite a bit larger, but still the shape and color. No idea what went into their genetics, but all of the volunteers are Cucurbita hybrids (as opposed to Lagenaria, which I also grow.)

    Col. Fryght - That really pleases me that you enjoyed digging up pareidolia examples! I've spent more time searching images than I'd care to admit. It's fun! :) (There are some great ones on Pinterest, too.) I keep a few hens just for eggs for our family. They're free range until it gets too cold and then they go in the coop. In late fall I get them used to hanging around the coop in part by feeding them there-- and one of the treats they enjoy is the old pumpkins. There are more...

    Beautiful photo, and awesome crop, Col! I'm thinking to harvest mine this week or next. We still have 80 degree weather out here, so the vines are growing strong.

    Stopped by to say I love the rotted pumpkin head candy holder you're making - the icky rubber "throat" will be great - very unsettling to feel when the kids put their hands in! Also the spindly legs on your spider really ups the arachnophobia creep-out factor. Very cool.
