Pumpkin carving!

And I thought the cat I carved into a pumpkin last year was great...

Not only did this Wisconsin man grow and carve this pumpkin into a canoe but, according to BBC, he christened it with another small pumpkin! And then he rowed it 150 miles in eight days, for kids with disabilities!

My Hero.

Pick your own pumpkins and carve them into whatever you like here on Oahu!
I found this pumpkin patch online and it looks like a gem:

There are tractor-pulled hayrides, pony rides, food, games and fun for everyone. Aloun Farms and their sponsors are dedicated to educating and sharing agriculture and its potential here in Hawaii. Go spend a family (or friends) day in the country and visit Aloun Farms, located at: 
91-1440 Farrington Highway, Kapolei, HI 96707.

Aloun Farms Kapolei Pumpkin Patch 2008 is open to the public on Saturday & Sunday, October 18, 19, 25 and 26, 2008 from 9am to 5pm.

Parking is $3 and pumpkins will be priced according to individual size. Cash only. No checks or credit cards.

That is AMAZING!

Other suggestions for what to carve since pumpkins are scarce in Laie:

Pineapple: difficult but possible. I carved one for Halloween 2005.

Watermelon: you can make green monsters with gory-looking, yet edible, red innards.

Squash: get more creative in your carvings using the fun shapes of squash.

Has anyone else carved non-pumpkin jack-o-lanterns?
