I sold exactly one. The guy who bought the large pumpkin said, "I'm gonna put a spigot in it and serve drinks that way." I wondered if he realized that the pumpkin didn't come as a hollow gourd, but I decided not to interfere.
We had other visitors. I enjoyed watching the squirrels play hide-and-go-seek in the pumpkin patch.
Two women came at separate times and asked how much it cost to take pictures. I didn't have the presence of mind to suggest a donation--I'm not sure I would have done that anyway. I gave one little girl stickers, and she acted like she had won the lottery.
I had plenty of time to read, to take pictures, and to sketch. As I thought about our pastor's observation that no other activity brings us into so much contact with our surrounding community, I made this sketch, and late in the process, the words "Pentecostal Pumpkins" came into my head.
Even if I didn't make many sales, it was a peaceful, meditative way to spend part of a day.
