Keeping up with tradition... here's late January 2023!

The pumpkin is still somehow going somewhat strong though its starting to show significant signs of decomposition and because of the falls its had, it's a bit fragile now.

Not sure how much longer it'll be around but it's amazing it's made it this far.

My pumpkins this year weren't so lucky. One barely made it to December and the other two were still looking quite good up until a week ago when the squirrels ate the top half of both of them. Oh well.

    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... more

    • Looking a little more beat than the May picture but not too shabby for something that should have rotted away back in December. Unfortunately, the summer heat and drought killed my thyme and small strawberry plant I've had for years.

        Sorry to hear about the thyme and strawberry plant... Sometimes plants only look dead then come back.

          Trying to keep the pumpkin in one piece with a toddler running around the yard has been difficult. I put it up high so he couldn't grab it. Unfortunately, at night, it fell and now has a large crack in it. Inside: So close to a year old too! I think if it at least makes it that far I'll... more

            It looks like you've got dried pumpkin. That might keep for some time. You'll have to keep updating the game with yearly photos just for the pure weirdness of it. :-) You never know... sometimes with plants when they look like they're dead they're just focused on other parts of life. Life finds... more

              In the initial release, have the current picture but number it something like "p001.bmp". Say there was some sort of "rotten pumpkin gallery". When you go there, it would start on p001.bmp. And if p002.bmp exists, enable a next button. You could set this up at the gallery start by iterating until... more

                I think it's the image rotation thing on the RCMRRC website. IIRC, it found the images in the folder, assigned numbers and kept iterating to change the pictures. I could be misremembering, though.
