Last year, at the beginning of October, we bought two pumpkins. One of which we carved right away but, the other, this huge robust 20 pounder was stout and perfect!
It was such a perfect pumpkin that I wanted it's carving to be as perfect and suiting as it was. A week went by then two. Halloween came and went and I still had not carved him.
A month went by, then another and another and another. I thought the he might just last forever.
This morning... TEN MONTHS LATER... I noticed his first signs of rot. I picked him up for further investigation and his whole bottom had started to rot. We had to put him outside.
I'd never heard of a pumpkin lasting this long. I'll try to get some pictures up before he's completely gone.
Succub'Oz said there was a thread about people who still have pumpkins but I couldn't find it. I want to hear about others who have had pumpkins this long. I could use a support group to help me deal with my loss.
Thanks for listening.
