If anyone has been growing their own pumpkins this summer, now is the time to give them a tattoo. As the pumpkin grows the tattoo becomes a raised scar. The end result is really cool and creepy. You can create custom messages or images (you can even write names on Jack Be Lantern pumpkins to use a place cards for a Halloween dinner) You'll need a template (to create designs) and a small pin (such as a thumbtack) to lightly etch the surface of the pumpkin. Don't dig out the message or image, as you can infect the pumpkin or create a space for bugs to live. As you lightly etch, you'll see a "watery" substance bleed from the skin. Over the next couple of weeks the pumpkin will scar and as it turns orange you'll have an edgier pumpkin, complete with his own tattoo.

Harvesing pumpkins: fruit is ripe when fully colored, skin is hard and the stem begins to shrivel and dry. Cure outdoors for about 2 weeks before storing.
