This is my first Halloween in Ontario with my sister’s family. Today we carved pumpkins (by we I mean “me” mostly.)
I have to say I am really impressed with the pumpkins here in Southern Ontario – big, orange, ripe and so easy to clean out! My niece chose the white pumpkin to design her face on – these must be a hybrid of some sort as I swear it smells, looks and tastes like a honeydew melon inside.
I carved the orange one and my niece drew her design on the white one but it was too difficult for her to carve it, so I finished it for her.
We are pretty happy with the results!
I did suffer an injury though…
Sliced right across the pad of my right index finger (Top Tip: Don’t hold THE BLADE of the knife when trimming the edges!) My sister applied first aid… I think these are Troll bandaids? It wasn’t too bad thankfully as I have clients later!
Hope everyone has a fun Halloween!
