The pumpkins were picked from the patch and the artists began their work.
Pops wields the knife and removes the tops and cuts out their designs and steps aside while the treekids get to gutting the squash.
Every seed must be accounted for... a bit of guts might land on one's shirt and that is ok. The nice clothes have by now been removed and replaced by some ratty tank top or undershirt!
Or, no shirt if you are a boy and too impatient to go get an old one from your room! They really have to dig deep when they choose a large pumpkin!
"Some" like digging in all that goo.
"Others" aren't so sure if they like the mess or not!
The appeal is knowing that Pops will be roasting some deliciously flavored seeds!
