What happened to my pumpkin? I bought 2 identical pumpkins several weeks before Halloween and decorated both with push in wood decorations only, not carved. One pumpkin went to Grandsons house as is still in perfect shape today November 8th. The second pumpkin went to Grand Ma's house which is a residential care facility for seniors. The pumpkin at the care facility rotted within 1 week, so we bought her a second pumpkin which also rotted in about a week. Is there something in the air at the facility? Do I have too much time on my hands? Any thoughts?
