I thought I would find some pumpkins at the local grocery, but there were only odd shapes and sizes. I ended up at wal mart of all places to get my pumpkins this year. I wish the Halloween stores in town would carry perfect pumpkins, I like doing intricate designs and turning it into a creative day and night, and having perfect pumpkins certainly makes it easier. I also like the way the designs come out when you have a nice smooth surface to work with. Maybe there could be premium pumpkins in a separate section for sale one day.
