Hello! My name is Scarlet, throughout the year I tend to the pumpkin patch and when October comes around, I get everything prepared for Halloween. Each year the boys and girl that visit The Nature Trail help me decorate by craving funny, scary and adorable faces into my pumpkins. It is my favourite activity to do at Halloween!

So grab your tools and your imagination and start craving!! Be sure you take your pumpkin home and place it outside the door so trick or treaters can see it.
