    We got our pile of pumpkins this year, but it looks like we’ll have them inside at least through Tuesday – and maybe on Halloween itself. Ah, hurricanes.

    you all stay safe up there. Being from Texas i have been through more than one hurricane and it can be rough. If I put a pumpkin out at my house the neighbors cat would just come pee on it and make it smell so I don’t bother…….darn cat.

    Pumpkins are great – if you keep them cool, they’ll last for months.
    About 15 years ago, as an experiment, we kept one to see how long it would last. It made it through the winter, and all the way to St. Patrick’s Day!
    No wonder farmers’ grew them – fresh squash until spring! Yum!

    I actually used to grow pumpkins when I was a kid. Would plant seeds (along with corn, peas) in the Spring. My dad explained about putting stakes for the pumpkin vine to grab onto so the pumpkins could grow.
    The only thing I had any trouble growing was watermelons.

    The day after Halloween, we always find a lot of pumpkin “road kill” in the streets, due to some sort of celebration I guess.

    Only problem—I’ve been told by people who raise pumpkins that ‘decorative pumpkins’ ar not good for making pumpkin pies. For that you need ‘field pumpkins’ whose flesh is paler and more favorful.

    I’ve heard the same thing, along with the claim that jack-o-lantern pumpkins are generally more watery. But they are usable for pies, just not anywhere near as good.

    The neighbor kids are so scared of me that my Jack O’Lantern is intact well after Election Day.
