Think outside the punkin'
Fall is in full force in the land of red, gold and umber colored foliage. I can see my breath (and sometimes smell-gross) early in the morning as Miss Kato and I make our morning lap around the hood. Summer annuals have bitten the dust and are replaced with more hearty stock. Mums, pansies or flowering kale can take the cool evening temperatures. Markets are overflowing with pumpkins of all varieties. With that said, this year go out on a limb! Instead of the old faithful pumpkin of years past, splurge on some heirloom pumpkins. Stack em up like I did to add a little height to your outdoor presentation or spread em around. Love her or hate her-you must admit, "jail-bird Stewart," has good a few good idea-rs rolling around in her squash. I mean this is quite possibly the greatest jack-o-lantern ever. If you have a little goblin running around your pad try and tell me they wouldn't think this jack-o-clock is the bee's knees?!? Hosting a little Halloween bash? Try this spread out. Ok, how cool would this be in front of your haunted house? Go ahead, get nuts, think outside the pumpkin.
