Our daughter and granddaughter made a jack-o’-lantern.
But even though we live on a vegetable farm, they had to buy the pumpkin because we don’t grow them here.
It’s interesting that this time of year one of the best-selling vegetables in the country is purchased not to eat, but as a decoration.
The jack-o’-lantern tradition originated in Ireland, where they carved turnips, not pumpkins.
We do have plenty of turnips. Maybe we should try to revive the old tradition.
