Jack o’ Lantern, Rodent Style

Ravaged pumpkin

We brought home a big, round, beautiful pumpkin from our CSA farm a few weeks ago. It was still covered in dirt from the field, so we left it outside, figuring that our neighbors, who adopted the tree pumpkin, were successful at preserving theirs that way.

Yeah, not so much. Apparently the neighborhood wildlife is anxious for Halloween, and decided to get a jump on the jack o’lantern carving. We returned from a weekend away to discover our pumpkin, ravaged by the local fauna.

Guess I need to send my cat, the Widowmaker, back outside to take care of the problem.
