Florida is TOO Hot

...for pumpkins. Ours lasted five days on the porch before it rotted. At least in this picture, it still had its little stem. That fell in about 15 minutes later, just before I made B push it into a trashbag and get rid of all the tiny flies that had made it home.

After this, of course, we noticed that everyone else on our block has plastic pumpkins. Posers.

For the record, EVERYTHING rots in Florida. A bag of potatoes? Five days. For real. I've had potatoes start to grow their OWN potatoes. I've never had one rot. Scarlett dug one out of the fire-infested ground that was Sherman's march through Atlanta. But in Florida? Five days. Hearty, my foot.
