Poll Vault: When's the last time you carved a pumpkin?
Illinois is the nation's leading pumpkin producer, which means you have plenty of options for carving. Digging out all those seeds might drive you out of your gourd, though (rimshot).
Seriously, do you and your family carve pumpkins for Halloween? How elaborate are your designs? What do you do with the seeds?
If you've got little ones, do you let them come up with the design before you take over the actual knife work? Or do you paint the pumpkins instead?
