Jack-o-Lantern carving may date back to an old story involving a turnip. Look it up. Can turnips really get large enough to hold a candle? Judging from a couple of freak radishes this summer, it’s very possible.
Contemporaneous carvings, thanks to Emily and Cesar.
Maybe not quite a Jack-o-Turnip, but a beauty nonetheless.
