Answer? The pumpkin I carved. Mold grew everywhere, so I had to chuck it. Any ideas as to why it happened or how to prevent it?
Also, while I'm on the subject of pumpkins, just how successfully can you use the 'meat' to make food? There was a discussion in a post the other day and one person said that they normally go with other types of squashes. Roasted pumpkin still sounds good to me at least in theory, but have any of you made it/tried it in real life?
