Good Thursday morning Capt. Wayne. Yes to both of your questions.
I like the carved pumpkins but they do not last as long. So use em as decorations. Mark
They are fun to carve, but I haven't done that in a few years. I will probably buy a few to have on the patio.
Sometimes I've used them without the carving.
No, I'm past the pumpkin carving stage of my life.
No I don't.
I have never carved a pumpkin in my life. Maybe I should put that on my bucket list.
Ours are used for pies and other tasty treats, jack o lanterns seem rather wasteful.
Grow, carve, paint, bake :)
Captain Wayne - Is it not a little early for pumpkins? It's not even October yet, and don't they rot after a while?
We don't buy one, at all, actually.
I haven't done anything in Years Captain Wayne but I used to love carving pumpkins and baking the seeds and munching on them.
I carve, paint with flourescent paint and small ones become pies or cheesecakes.
The kids love to carve the pumpkins and compete on who can carve the coolest or scariest designs. Somehow I always get stuck removing the guts
People used to rely on this for a food source. Now its a fun source?
It's tough to keep 'em going for more than a week and that's with some delicate stencil work that doesn't invole traditional carving. We hit 90 today and if it stays near there it'll be rough for the Jack-O-Lanterns this year.
Both! :) A bit of a family tradition.
We use them for Pie.
Captain - not my cup of tea!
I neither carve or use them for decoration although I have enjoyed eating pumpkin. It's not just for pie anymore.
I do both at this time
no and yes
Captain Wayne - Rowlett Real Estate School We used to carve them every year when our Son was growing up. Haven't done one lately.
No. And we don't eat them either.
I no longer carve them but will uses some small ones for decor and then cut them and cook the pulp for pies.
