We have been in our home for a year and a half. Last year there was no sign of pumpkins, however this year in our front year (near our fence) we had a special pumpkin. We waited to the last possible moment to cut it....and it was GREEN!! For reals! I guess the pumpkin season wasn't the greatest and so a lot of pumpkins took a while to turn orange. And some didn't even turn orange at all. Well ours did not turn orange, it stayed a nice Christmas green.
I decided to carve it the night before halloween, to our surprise...the thing was thick! We think that it was not done growing, and the pumpkin was already huge! I couldn't do any fun carving because I barely got the knife in. Kena did get to play with pumpkin guts, which she enjoyed.
