last year my pumpkins withered away within a week.
i've heard of several tricks of the trade to make jack o lanterns last longer, so i was wondering what personal experiences you guys have. what works and what doesn't work? i've heard greasing the cut parts with vasaline, soaking the finished jack o lantern in salt water... ?
help! i love to carve pumpkins, but i want my hard work to last more than a week!
oh, and here's last year's project.
