Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

With snow on the ground this morning I am reminiscing about our  pumpkin picking day about 2 weeks ago.  The weather was so warm.  This is the first year that my kids are wearing shorts and flip flops for our pumpkin picking photos. 

My daughter is always ready to pose for pictures.  I’ve had a camera in her face since she was born.  She can say “cheese” on demand.  My son on the other hand is not so interested in having his picture taken.  You can see he looks quite bored by the whole process.  Oh well, he will have to deal with it because I do take a lot of photos.

It’s not always easy to pick the best looking pumpkins.  We were able to find three that we liked.

The big one was for me to carve.  My daughter had chosen a template to a skull, which would look perfect on that pumpkin.  Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain after that weekend and one day I came home from work to find a pile of mush on my front doorstep.  I had to take out that snow shovel to scoop up the mess and throw in the garbage and then hose down the steps.  There was pumpkin ooze everywhere.  Well at least Buzz and the little pumpkin survived. 

The pieces for Buzz I found at Target for $6. It was too cute too pass up.  My daughter loves Buzz Lightyear.  She is dressing up as him for Halloween again this year.

I just thought this was interesting.  Someone drove up in this vehicle at the pumpkin farm.  I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it.
