For 2021, I picked up this gnarly looking pumpkin at Grocery Outlet, and carved this creepy face in it. After a few months, the exposes parts of the face shriveled up, and the outer skin hardened and turned pale. The zombie turned into a tweaker!
During the 6-month attempt to acclimate my Nevada family to living on the Florida Panhandle, I carved up this dude.
Unlike the meth pumpkin above, this guy liquified into the soil within days of being placed outside. Then a couple weeks later, little pumpkin sprouts emerged in its place.
