Flashback Monday: A Pumpkin Man and An Unlicensed Yoda Make For A Perfect Fall in Reston

Pumpkin Man
Now that we're in the thick of fall, our thoughts turn to crisp nights, pumpkins, and terrifying genetic freaks fun costumes. This photo of the long-lamented Reston Farm Market must date back to the early to mid 1980s, given the sign promoting the unlicensed use of a Star Wars character to entice impressionable youngsters to the otherwise generic pumpkin patch fun.

No word if the gourd-wearing gentleman is the foul-mouthed proprietor who caused such a stir among the church ladies of nearby Vienna, the end.


  1. Maybe David Lynch can use Pumpkin Man in his reboot of Twin Peaks.

    1. That Russet Brown you like is going to come back in style.
