Is there nothing you can't do?  They are fab!

Mine all came to nothing (as usual), just fodder for the compost heap

26/09/2013 at 03:07

Mine been rubbish last 3 yrs, but speaking of compost heap, that's where we grew ours our 1st yr here as we had no veg beds then or anywhere to grow em. We grew one at 4 stone! So that's where they're goung again next yr, and the sweetcorn.

As for the carving, any chance you could do templates, Stacey. For the ones I'll have to buy again this yr! I can't even draw a respectable stick man, and can't get my son to realise that we need to have bits inbetween the carving for it to hold up.  As I can't draw, I can't explain it, either!

Gardenjeannie I will happily send you templates if I can find any of the above ones....I have to say we did 5 one year and had a team of 4 people hollowing and helping with the carving......... ( this was b4 lo) and it did invol e lots of wine....

They look amazing

I was looking at one of my groups on facebook, and someone used a drill to carve their pumpkins. I was thinking of using small ones in this way to make a little line of night lights. 

My all-time favourite pumpkin design has to be the one that looks like it's had a very nasty tummy bug lol

Lol love it Emma..... We use scalpels and pumpkin carving tools ( yes they do exist) from the states.. Am gonna try doing an evening forkers one .......

Wow they are fantastic. I'll give the carving a miss, I'm rubbish at anything arty and I'd probably just end up with something looking like a blob with a ruddy great hole in the middle lol. And even if I did manage it, if I stuck a couple of those outside my front door at night and then went outside and came face to face so to speak I'd die of fright lol I'm such a wimp I'd scare myself, soo dark in my garden!
