One of the fun things about Halloween is carving pumpkins.  Its fun, it's messy, it's crazy and it's a Halloween tradition.  However, when it comes to carving your pumpkins sometimes the pumpkins rot before you really get to enjoy them.  So when is the best time to carve your pumpkin?

I have carved pumpkins at the beginning of October and they never last.  I have carved in the middle of October, sometimes they last, sometimes they don't.  I have carved the weekend before Halloween and I have had them last, but at the same time I have had them rot in a day.
