We asked. You delivered — jack-o’-lanterns of every size, shape and shade the fall harvest could provide.

Some carving creators went traditional, like Will Akridge of Oxford and his son Carter with their Scarface Jack. Some got a little scary, like Ben Simmons of Jacksonville with his painted skull engulfed in flames.

And some wanted a personal touch, like Stacy Roland whose “Poodle Pumpkin” immortalized in gourd her well-coiffed pooch.

Tia Stambaugh of Piedmont even coordinated her pumpkin with her son Landon’s Halloween costume: “He is Spiderman so I painted him a Spiderman pumpkin.”

But whether these pumpkin patch-goers went sweet or scary, their fall festive spirit is written — or carved — all over their jack-o’-lanterns’ faces.

“We had so much fun carving these,” wrote Christa Morphis of Anniston. “It’s been such a long time since we’ve actually done one, we ended up doing three!”
