Since Halloween is at the end of this month I discovered something last year that I want to pass along. There is a pumpkin called a lunch lady, it is kind of ugly and looks like it has warts all over it. But it is also, at least in my opinion, kind of cool. This is a good option to set out front for decoration and it does not go bad as fast as other pumpkins. You will be different without much effort. Just make sure it is out of the way so you do not trip. I put mine beside the front door and it last well over a month!
