It's important to tend to your porch pumpkins that have frozen and unfrozen before they become so soft that when you lift them they turn to goo and ooze all over your porch. Mine are now in the yard waste bags slotted for pick up tomorrow. Except for one or two that is.
I went to the store today and got a few fresh carnival squashes and a buttercup squash to go with the gourds and one last warty pumpkin and squash I bought at the pumpkin patch a month ago. I need some kind of Thanksgiving vibe for the porch so I dumped them all in the fountain along with some other stuff.
While all the neighbors were putting up Christmas lights today I put out my battery operated candle and some more orange stuff. If I knew any Thanksgiving songs I would have sang them very loud while I was doing it.
This might be my most favorite pumpkin of any pumpkin I have ever bought. I love that orange/gray color. I am crossing my fingers that it holds strong and does not go all gooey on me before Thanksgiving. I would hate for Chris to have to clean up that mess.
