Oct 2021 Pumpkin Update - May 2022!

Okay... usually I just post the rotten pumpkins at the bottom of the page, but this year is a bit different. I have this one pumpkin that seems have mummified itself like I've never seen before.

I'm not sure how it happened, I've left it in the backyard since probably November. It's been out in the elements yet it still continues to exist. It doesn't smell and is super light. What's interesting is there were two other pumpkins with it. One rotted like normal. The other one rotted into a flat pumpkin but then mummified like this one. It actually was still around until I had to mow that area. This one is safe from the mower being that it's still complete and easy to move around.
I wonder if having all the bumps on it somehow helped?

Here it is in all it's current glory:

Here they are back in January. It's crazy that they were still orange at that point:
