Fruit, vegetable, decor? What to do with these pumpkins?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

Janice McCann, Fort Mill: “Decorate the house with it – lots of them.”
