It was my roommate's birthday the other day (Oct 20) and, during the days prior, I had been racking my brain, trying to come up with bday gift/activity ideas. On the day of his bday, he sent me a random text message at 2 a.m. to suggest that we carve the pumpkins. And we did! (Followed by wine and weed by a backyard bonfire.) It was my first time to carve a pumpkin and his first time to smoke weed. Yay, new experiences and bonding!
Is this pumpkin ready for a pickin'? I accepted two free little pumpkin starts in July, I had no idea what I was in for. They are LARGE, FAST-GROWING plants, yo. (Furthermore, the word #pumpkin can evoke alarming imagery if you turn it into a verb phrase.)
