This guy almost made it to Halloween. He sat around waiting all those months. Then the mold spot arrived.So we carved him.First official jack o'lantern of 2011:Photo by Bean.(Clove tealight by Dark Candles.)
That is a beauty. I got a little brain tingle just looking at that Jack O' Glory.
The seeds and guts were all tan and dried out..
You kept a pumpkin from last year?
Oh how neat! The new season is on its way!
Your Pumpkins always look so amazing Rot. I was wondering if you would share your carving techniques and what tools you use when you cave out your master pieces.
I LOVE him! Do you have room to grow pumpkins next season at the new house?
makes the heart go pitter patter...anticipation...
DEFINITELY a sign of good things to come. I grew a huge pumpkin this year and it's still hanging on.Word Verification: lablessi
WOW, he made it that long? Incredible.
We bought him a week before Halloween and figured he'd only last a couple of months. But he stayed firm and fresh until a few days ago. Dang it.There are alot of rabbits and chipmunks in our neighborhood. Any neighbors with gardens have elaborate fences going high and deep. We might still give it a try next spring and grow a small patch in the corner of the backyard..under the big cauldron.As far as carving technique...I just used a dull kitchen knife. And I never draw the face first.And I go with the flow.
Great jack-o.I am heading to Myrtle Beach S.C. next weekend and there is a shop that sells Dark Candles, so hopefully they have what I usually get and I can get them there so I don't have to wait for them to ship....
That there is a pumpkin blessed with long life. Impressive.
Yeah, he's going out in the yard today. He seems to be rotting at an accelerated rate.It's too bad that pumpkins don't petrify like small gourds..I guess the skin's too thick...all that moisture.
