Found these ugly beauties at Pavilions this afternoon. Similar to the ugly pumpkins of last week, this time they were a very glorious deep rusty orange. Smelled good too. Problem is that like the last batch they are too short to put a candle in them. I’m a purist, has to be tall enough for a candle. None of that battery operated bulbs for me.
I may get one of these uglies just to cook down for soup and see what happens. The jack’s have a short life as when the treaters leave, they are roasted off and canned the next day for breads, soups, and a few pies during the next few months.
Pic by me with the trusty che-ez. Click it to make it bigger in all its imperfect glory.
