Pumpkins, Eureka!

As I bought the pumpkin in, the lady was like, "Oh no, what's wrong?" I was like, "Well Matthew touched the stem and it's now inside the pumpkin with water." She was so impressed with the strangeness of the pumpkin, she cut it open while I was there and I had to take a photo. Isn't it gross? But you can actually tell there is still an 1/2" of good flesh all around the outside. It literally is rotting from the inside out, not the normal way, outside in.

So for an extra 3 dollars, we got 3 pumpkins! A real sigh moment, turned into an happy ending.

good job, mama! Now the bug can dive his hands right in if you decide to carve them! :)

Eew. That one looks really gross. I'm glad you got more pumpkins though. Have fun with them.

Yucky- I'm glad you were able to exchange your pumpkin for a new one. That is really odd that it's rotting from the inside in....I wonder if that is due to a virus?

Wow, that was amazing. I'm glad you didn't drop it! Your new ones look great, although the first one was awesome on the outside.

Angela, nah, I think it had a hole around the stem and started rotting there.

We're headed out to buy pumpkins tomorrow. I've fought off the urge as long as possible (I was shooting for post-Halloween 'cause they're half price). Can't do it. I must have one tomorrow!! :)
