Pumpkins With Personality At The Tunbridge World's Fair

My favorite part of any fair is checking out the award-winning pies, pickles and oversize gourds. I also have a soft spot for food that comes to life, possibly ignited by the iconic French's Mustard commercials of my youth. So when I dropped in on the Tunbridge World's Fair this weekend, I was pretty blissed out to stumble across an entire wall of pumpkins, squash and apples reanimated by kids. 

Mr. Freckles, Nellie the Duck and the Flying Gourd were happy to pose for photos. The others took some convincing, but I'm particularly fond of the minimalist apple-lime duo.
