I saved all of the “innards” (I don’t know what else to call the stuff from inside the pumpkin) from when I carved my pumpkins on Sunday to give to the chickens as a treat. They got some of their treat on Monday.
There were a lot of victory dances with beaks full of pumpkin, and a lot of pumpkin being slung around. Added bonus? Pumpkin seeds are a natural dewormer for chickens!
This evening I plan to proudly display my jack-o-lanterns on our porch, while handing out candy to any children who happen to come to our door and beg for food.
I do not plan to dress up. But yesterday I did purchase a festive Halloween bowl that says “Trick or Treat” and has a picture of a spider on it, which I plan to use to distribute the candy to the aforementioned beggars (aka kids in costume). Hank and Scout will be hanging out in the basement so that they don’t frighten the kids.
Terrifying, aren’t they?
What are your Halloween plans?
