The Witches Field

The Witch Farms spooktacular harvest of pumpkins was a once in a blue moon event, and was open to the public and Mitch dreamed of the most incredible pumpkin he could find, to celebrate halloween this year .

Legend was , this harvest belonged to a generous witch who shared her seeds in the springtime.

If someone else toiled in it, the crops would die and she would send beetles to plague them.

..... who wants my pumpkin pretties? It was not your normal , edible pumpkin he was after anyway, *gulp* he just wanted to decorate his house to scare the little goblins and ghouls with.
The End

  3. Very creative! a witch a curse a man all from a picture of pumpkins. Nice.

  4. Oh Jackie,
    This is such a nice Halloween story. I agree with Jeff about the beetle curse.
    Why do some gardeners succeed better with their plants that others? Is it just the right balance of light, water, the right temperature and soil conditions? Or is their a pumpkin witch who controls your pumpkin patch?
    Well done.
    Best wishes,

  17. I love the idea of a good witch, though, in general, witches give me the creeps. This story is well written and just the ticket for this prompt.


  18. What a fun story, just in time for Halloween. Great use of the prompt, and I loved the beetle curse too! Kat

  19. Jackie, you surprise me this week!

    This was such a different use of the prompt and I was enchanted with the whole 'beetle curse' visual.

    I really, really liked what you did here.

    Was this a quick inspiration or did it take a little bit to flow? It seemed like it might have just poured out in a complete little perfect gem of a story.

    Thank you for linking.
