this years Halloween contributions were all made from fodder squashes.  I thought they came out good.  I'm never buying  a pumpkin again!

My kids did the classic style ones.  They had a blast doing the designs and helping to harvest the seeds (toasted and eaten with smiles).  Young kids love to rip the guts (seeds) out of a squash for some reason.  I think it's a built-in trait. I did the tree on the zucchini just for kicks, while I was cooking dinner.  I used my old boy scout Swiss army knife.   A good way to kill five minutes between tossing roasting pumpkin seeds.    Lots of fun for sure.
