I have not carved a pumpkin in probably sixteen years... So even though we kept our designs pretty basic, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I no longer had to use those terrible dull blade plastic 'safe' knives that were so popular in the 80s & 90s.
Pumpkin carving technology has evolved: tiny metal saws, scoopers & we even pulled out the power drill-a.k.a. my new favorite! Which means I will be drilling holes in other produce throughout the year just for the fun of it. Happy Halloween!
