When I reached out to research this story, I felt like this was probably a ridiculous question.
In the heat of South Carolina, is there anything we can possibly to make our carved pumpkins last more than 12 hours?
Nearby Clemson University has a renowned agriculture department, but pumpkins are not a big crop here in SC. In fact, the weather conditions here are horrid for them!
Eventually, I dug up an expert who actually had suggestions!
My family and I have been talking about getting 2 or 3 pumpkins and putting this academic’s theory to the test!
Any excuse to put out more Halloween decorations!
