If you are trying to blast a pumpkin you probably want to bring some power. The fourth of July is long past, so we had trouble collecting some fire power.

We did have some firecrackers but our black cats were no match for the watery flesh of our test pumpkin. Here is what we learned.

If you are going to blow up a pumpkin you will:

1. Embed the explosive into the flesh because if you just throw the explosive into the inside, it may not be powerful enough to blow it up.

2. Do it before you cut a bunch of holes in the pumpkin. the holes in the pumpkin will just let the explosive gas escape and the pumpkin may not explode.

They aren't made of steel or anything, but their watery, fibrous nature make them pretty difficult to blast.
