Happy Halloween: no GMO pumpkins please!

October 31, 2008

Just a suggestion from my friend Jason to pitchfork those GMO pumpkins out of our fields!

Have a happy halloween with your own homegrown gourds! Compost lightly some seeds from this year’s pumpkin carving (roast the rest!) and spread them come spring and you will have a lovely crop of volunteers just like we did!

Here’s Art Predator as Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus with her favorite calavera from last year’s Halloween!

The calavera this year rejected being a skeleton pirate for “SUPER BATMAN!” That’s a Superman muscle costume with a Batman belt and cowl. And yes I am going as Ms Frizzle again–but in a black 50’s taffeta dress covered with foam animals…photos to come, I promise!

    I don’t want halloween to go away. I want it to go back to being what it was rather than a way of stereotyping a valid religeon, making a certain part of society into things for scaring children so the Christians could take over a pagan Harvest Festival. And the the americans come along and turn it into way of making a profit off of children. Thanks, as usual Gwendolyn for the opportunity for vent.

    you’re welcome Paul!

    i don’t want halloween to go away either but the commercialism and the candy part is sad. it takes away the aspects which matter–about the circle of life, and the role of death, rebirth, renewal.
