Hello there punkin!
Can you believe October is upon us already? That means it is time to go pumpkin picking! My fave…
Here is an out of the box use for a pumpkin. It becomes a unique fall planter. My SIL dubbed it a “mumkin”…can’t take credit for that one but I sure do love it!
Pick a large pumpkin. Carve the top wide enough to fit a 4 inch or 6 inch plant. Clean out the inside of the pumpkin and let it dry.
Once it is dry, insert the plant leaving it in its nursery pot. It is really important that you leave the pot around the soil. I learned the hard way a few years ago that if you plant the soil in the pumpkin it will rot almost immediately. It is just too much moisture for the pumpkin. Also remove the plant from the pumpkin when watering. Let all of the water drain before re-planting. Try not to get any excess water in the pumpkin.
There you have a mumkin! It makes the perfect fall centerpiece.
Update! Check out the mini mumkin here!
