Avery has grown, pumpkin pretty much the same, but had more wrinkles (kinda like me).
|This is what a one year old pumpkin looks like from the inside.|
It looks like cobwebs, but its just all dried up pumpkin guts.
|Elmo pattern found on internet.|
|I read that those silica packets help with the pumpkins not molding.|
|Our pumpkin carved.|
The verdict: Carving a one year old pumpkin was so much easier because it was drier. The shell was easier to carve, although a bit more brittle. The insides of the pumpkin weren't as slimy. And the pumpkin seeds that came out of the pumpkin? They were plumper. Gonna run out and buy a pumpkin this year, and save it for next!... maybe.
