4 Ways To Preserve Carved Pumpkins

One of the biggest bummers about Halloween is the fact that you can't carve jack-o'-lanterns too early or they start to get all moldy and saggy.

October is a long month to have a pumpkinless porch, so we either have to buy more pumpkins when the first ones start rotting or deal with having a hole in our holiday decor until Halloween night.
