Halloween; the time of year it becomes acceptable to blast out Monster Mash, sneak pumpkin into near enough everything and cover a whole apple in toffee and still deem it one of your five a day.

From bingeing on the sweets that didn’t quite make it to the trick or treaters, to the moment you turn the big light off and light the candle in the pumpkin to illuminate your masterpiece, gore blimey it’s a good time of year. As you get older, the magic of these times of the year may slightly fade but one thing that has got better over the years is pumpkin carving. And to do that, you need a pumpkin. Yes it’s easier to pick one up from the supermarket but there’s nothing better than going to a farm, picking one yourself and making a day of it.
