It’s that time of year: time to pick the pumpkins.
This week finds the Dahlem Center and its staff busy getting ready for our annual Goblin Walks. Two nights of not-so-scarey Hallowe’en fun start with the gathering of over 100 pumpkins. So Monday morning, bright and early, we found ourselves out at Gee Farms, where Gary Gee graciously lets us scour his fields for leftovers we can use.
It was a good pumpkin year, so we had plenty to choose from.
And not just pumpkins, either. There were lots of decorative gourds still on the vines, so we grabbed a few of those as well.
We loaded two pick-up trucks, a trailer, a van and the backs of a couple SUVs – we have enough pumpkins to take care of any carving needs we might have.
I love fall!
So! If you are feeling the urge to be creative with a knife, please come on out and join us THIS Friday, the 21st, from noon until 3:00 PM, as we carve nearly 200 jack-o-lanterns to line our trails for Goblin Walks!
