Eating Floyd: Pumpkin Carving @ FFM

Yesterday was the last official Saturday of the Floyd Farmers Market.  Unofficially it will continue until the last farmer runs out of produce to sell or can no longer withstand the cold.  But officially the market closed out with its annual Pumpkin Carving Competition. Two classes- adults and children.
This stuff is just plain fun!  Goofy, I know, but it beats shopping at malls as a sport any day.  This is one of the kids pumpkins.  See more after the jump!

Michael took First Place with a Jarrdale blue pumpkin and Shana and I tied for Second with her poodle pumpkin and my moon and stars pumpkin.

And because we're below the Mason-Dixon and just north of NASCAR mecca there must be this:
...which was carved by Randy, Shana's s.o.  What you can't see is the really cool way the signature lights up and glows.

Also on hand were Barbara Pleasant and Mike Burton pressing fresh apple cider for immediate consumption and to take home by the jugful.

Pumpkins and Apple Cider.  I love Fall!
