The temperature is expected to rise near 100ºF or 37.7777ºC this weekend and even though these pumpkins were still solid and strong on the outside, I knew the heat would split them open. . . so. . . to prevent the humiliation of rotting in public, I booked them an extended vacation in Garbage Paradise.
We thank them for the many months of colorful pleasure they gave our garden and sincerely wish them well on their journey into the after-life.
