Today was a good day. Among other things, I picked and carved a pumpkin. It was the first time I have carved a pumpkin for recreational purposes (I have carved them while teaching labs on the Cucurbitaceae and on fruit types; a pumpkin is a pepo).
I’ve never seen a Jack o’ lantern with a mustache, until today that is. Because mine has one.
I rather enjoyed pumpkin carving. I think it might become a regular fall activity.
