The Giant Pumpkin (Carved)

The giant pumpkin has been carved. Jackson opted for a traditional Jack-O-Lantern design from a greeting card we received.

After using a Saws All to remove the top we discovered a 3″ thick skin that was actually quite soft. I used 10″ serrated knife to do the carving.

The pumpkin was pretty sparse inside. I’ve seen more guts out of a pumpkin a third its size. The seeds are definitely giant. We plan to dry them and see if we can get them to germinate for next year.
