That's the way I'm
going about it!
Figured it would be a wise idea to just scrape away the areas early on, wait until a little closer to the night at hand to gut and cut and hope it all stays intact. Unlike LAST year, where I gutted a bunch of 'em FIRST
, very early on and waited until the night before H-ween to carve out my designs. By that time, I had a batch of mushy, useless piles of pumpkin goo and another batch that were headed in that direction.
So yeah, if you've got scrape-away parts I would start with those on the outside surface before gutting and cutting.
