Here is what Rick from near Rochester NY had to say about this masterpiece.
I usually grow a few Atlantic Giant pumpkins every year and carve them up.
Some of the giants have a recessive gene for *green* skin; those look
particularly striking when carved. While the skin is green, the flesh is
still normal orange color. Here's one 280 pounder that I carved last
year... hope you enjoy it!
When I am not carving pumpkins, I am a successful entrepreneur. This year I launched a new brand of bulletproof vests. You can see it at BulletSafe.com. It is a pretty big deal too. It offers great protection and only costs $299.
