This is the first year I've grown pumpkins. I have three vines total: one on our deck and two in my backyard. The potted pumpkin plant on our deck is not the healthiest of the three. It has fungus (which I have treated) and a few yellowing leaves. It produced two pumpkins. One died. The other is gro...

I really want to see other people's carves. There's no excuse now since the foam pumpkins are out in the stores. Get to it! :grin:

I've been carving my butt off, but I've been on a mission since New Years.

I would start a Facebook page to gauge genuine interest. Once you know how many people are committed, then you can choose the size of the venue, order food, have games ready, etc.

These are different than Gemmys. I actually like them better because they don't have the ribs on the inside and don't have AS MUCH of the random orange spray paint on the inside. They are the same height (13 inches) but are slimmer. They still fit a standard 8.5 x 11 pattern just fine. They are both...

Hobby Lobby has them. It's been rumored that Michaels has them, but I checked today in Portland, and didn't see any.

Thanks Mayor. Yeah, I found myself making more and more as I waited for foam pumpkins to arrive in stores. I ended up making 20 of them. :shock: Now that the foamies are back in stores, I'm going focus on those now. I can't believe that fall is only 3 months away. I can't wait to see your carves thi...

I've always been curious about what one of Ryan's carves looks shaded. I experimented with Pennywise. This nice thing about Ryan's carvings is that if you mess up while shading, you can always do a cutout and it will still look great! I wanted to preserve this moment before I light this thing on fir...

It's been a very busy carving season for me. After Halloween last year, I scored about 35 pumpkins on sale. It's now April, and I only have one uncarved pumpkin left from that stash. I'm doubling the size of my display and this year and I'm actively promoting it. I've never been so excited about Hal...

What did you do, stick them in the freezer for 6 months? Have them shipped from Argentina?

I would love to see Ryan try his hand at a few shaded patterns. I think they would turn out great!
