I bought a large-ish pumpkin in Asda last week (Friday), we then went away for a few days but left it in a room which is quite cool and away from sunlight.
Went to lift it up this morning and the insides fell out through the bottom!! I was left with no pumpkin to carve, a great splodgy mess to clean up (thankfully the floor is tiled!) and some decidedly strange-smelling slippers!
Should I take all the mush back and ask for a replacement? I'm sure I've bought pumpkins a week in advance before and they've never done this
there has apparently been a big problem with pumpkins this year due to the weather and a lot have gone rotten before they should (it was on breakfast tv yesterday). I havent looked at mine yet and hope it hasnt gone the same way too.
