Our pumpkin continues to get bigger. It's about the size of a soccer ball now and it's turned a dark shade of green. I read that once the nights start to really cool down, the pumpkin starts to turn orange. It's already been getting down into the 50's here at night, so I'm guessing it will soon change from dark green to bright orange. I am hoping that it gets alittle bigger so that it's easier to carve.
