Jack-O-Lantern 5

March 9th, 2009 by John Wolfe

It was the summer of 1984 and my grandparents had a small but extremely bountiful apple orchard. Being a nine year old Halloween freak, what else was there to do but carve up jack-o-lantern apples? Today’s “jack” is in honor of that summer. I had to snap the photo quickly or else sprinkle on some fruit fresh – the flesh was starting to change color. You’ll probably see many fruits and vegetables jack-o-lantern’ized over the next several weeks.

Jack-O-Lantern 4

March 8th, 2009 by John Wolfe

This jack-o-lantern was inspired by my great aunt. I can remember hearing a story years ago about how her husband was arguing quite frequently with her. On one particular occasion, she took a toothpick and wrote some choice four-letter words in his butter container. When he went to butter his toast in the morning, there was the greeting carved out for him – sort of like a foulmouthed fortune cookie. :) While I replaced the butter with peanut butter, I did use my aunt’s implement of choice for creating the jack-o-lantern image. Glad I had some creamy on hand instead of chunky.
