The pumpkins arrived early this morning and distribution and pick-ups immediately
followed. The Pumpkin Pusher, better known as Michael Carestio, delivered
a dozen bright-orange, goblin globes to this year's competitors in the WIlls
Eye 2nd Annual Carving Contest. Pumpkins are rich in iron and are similar to squash, although
for every claim of its being a vegetable and equal number of notables say it's a fruit.
