I wrote about ExtremePumpkins.com in our Halloween issue last year, but thought that Tom Nardone's site deserved to be highlighted again.

Covering topics like "fire, light and pyrotechnics," "power tools," and "design strategy," you can be sure that the pumpkins featured here will not look like Martha Stewart's (not that he has anything against her: "Martha is cool as heck in my book," as he puts it). The gallery pages are well worth looking at for inspiration and for laughs, and Tom even has a bang-up good pumpkin seed recipe (I know, I've tried it).
