Pumpkins


A church on New Britain Avenue in West Hartford raises money by 
selling hundreds of pumpkins for Halloween every year.

The November 1 theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Heights."

Pumpkins do seem to be moneymakers!

It's familiar sight this time of year.

We see some of these here, now that Halloween is becoming more popular... But nothing like thei!

Looks like one of ours we regularly see each season. It's fun to watch children select their own pumpkin. I often wonder what happens to the unchosen at the end of Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Wow!

It's a good idea but I'd still probably buy them elsewhere.

That is a LOT of pumpkins!! A familiar sight this time of year indeed! I guess it shows what a grumpy old geezer I am, but after seeing four kids through all the holidays for years, the only thing they bring me these days is RELIEF that I don't have to do it any longer!! Hope you have a great weekend, Jack! Enjoy!

I just went to a pumpkin festival yesterday! All those piles of pumpkins make me hungry for pie.

Churches around here do the same thing, including a Methodist church in Cedar Key. There must be a method to their madness!

But I can't help wonder if you were ever a "Jack" O-lantern? Heh, heh.

I'm always impressed by the number of pumpkins you have in USA! Never seen so much here..

RedPat said...

I'm amazed at all the intricate carving that goes on these days - not like the triangle eyes and spiky teeth of old!
I always have a camera with me, Jack.

It's a good way to make money!

We have a church here that has a rather large pumpkin assortment.

Madge Bloom said...

Cool idea... I wonder what they do with the money they raise?

Kay said...

Looks like a nice selection of squash. Most pumpkin sellers I've seen have been secular.

Pumpkins are very popular in your country, here not so... we had a pumpkins market for a few years, then they gave up.
