So on October 14th last year, my and my friend went to Lancaster PA. We bought a very nice pumpkin from some Amish guy, and Brought it back home to NY with us.
Well fast forward to Memorial Day this year, and WE CARVED IT
thats right, the pumpkin stayed rot free all these months on my friends Fireplace hearth. Just 3 days ago, we noticed a spot on the back of it, which was brown and getting soft, so instead of throwing it in the backyard, we gave it a happy face.
A lot of the seeds inside were already sprouting, which i have never seen before.
