Yep, you're seeing that right. That pumkpin grew the word "Welcome" on it's skin! You know how sometimes when you buy pumpkins, they have those thick brown scaly calloused areas? Over at Not Just a Housewife, the cleverest lady on earth realized that we can manipulate those scars to form whatever pumpkin art we want! By scratching the desired design onto the pumpkin's skin just as it turns orange, it scars over and makes cool words! It can make pictures, too, of course. Whatever you want to scratch in! Thanks to her I just might finally win the yearly 'coolest pumpkin contest' with my sister-in-law next year!
How neat would it be if every family on your block had one with "the Whoever's" on their porch for the autumn season? Now if only I had enough space for a garden to grow them all! Oh, well. I have a year. I'm sure I can
con beg someone to loan me some a ton of garden space. I don't think I could stop with just one of these!
