Do you have homegrown pumpkins that are still green and the vine is dead? To turn your green pumpkins orange, cut the stems to four inches tall and wash your pumpkins with a diluted bleach solution to remove any mold. Then place pumpkin in a dry, warm spot. Continue to turn the green side towards the sun.
Your green pumpkin will become “sun tanned” to a rich orange color before carving time.
Send a photo of your favorite carved pumpkin to Gardens ALIVE Design so we can share it on our Facebook page.
