Something neat to do with your pumpkins

While the pumpkins are still green, carve some names or designs in them and when it scars over, you'll give the kids a delightful surprise during harvest! My nephews never could figure out how this happened! :)

This is awesome. If only I grew large pumpkins instead of miniatures...

that is excellent! I'm definitely doing this for my kids.

I also read that if you put the undeveloped pumpkin inside a square object or box about the size the pumpkin will be when mature, you can grow a square pumpkin! My little ones love reading that Spookley book so I'm hoping to blow their minds that way too ;)

Looks like you really made a deep impression. What kind of object did you use to make it? Love it.

I just used a pocket knife, and it wasn't all that neat as you can see :) Maybe some of you can think of a better way!

How far along should pumpkin be when I do this? This one has only been growing a week or so.

Any time no would work, as long as it's green!
