Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

Jenny PP and I went to the MIT glass lab event on Saturday. We managed to score a couple of beautiful pumpkins, but the place was a madhouse. Competition was crazy--I arrived over an hour before the event started, and there were 150 people in line ahead of me! This year's event was much pricier than last year's, too; the cheapest pumpkin I saw was $30 and the most expensive pumpkin was $850. How insane is that?

So I didn't get a chance to implement my evil plan because I was totally priced out. I couldn't bargain because I grabbed the cheapest pumpkins I could find. For me, it was a much calmer morning than I'd anticipated, which is probably good. People were being crazy greedy, though; JPP and I saw several people purchasing 10+ pumpkins at a time. Folks hoarded like crazy, too.

At any rate, here are our pumpkins. We got the orange one last year and the other two this year:

And here are the 2 photos I took at the event before my camera batteries died:


I hope that Jenny PP will post some of the photos she took--you won't want to miss the insanity.

Thanks for a fun date morning, Ms. JPP!
