puckle: a small amount, a number, a few.

“I have all my creations both turnips and pumpkins saved here since I was a young child, which keeps two men in steady employment. And now always at this time of year I gather and preserve a few examples that other people have made.”

Real carved pumpkins here.

[puckle spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
