Day 254 - Turnip Jack-o-Lantern - 9/12/2015

I've read a couple of places that the original Jack-o-Lanterns were made of turnips and other more-common vegetables than pumpkins.

So I made one as today's Thing!

I read that it's better to cut the bottom off than the top, so I did that.

I scooped out the insides with a teaspoon. It smelled very earthy.

It ended up smaller than I thought it would.

I set it on a tea light candle.

But the more I put the turnip around the candle, the less oxygen it got and it started to go out.

I think it turned out pretty cool for my first turnip Jack-o-Lantern. The site I read said that it will only last 3 to 5 days.

I was hoping it would last until Halloween.
