Don't forget the pumpkins!

Pumpkins are everywhere right now... yard decorations and jack-o-lanterns just waiting to be put in your compost pile. Don't let 'em go to waste! A little blog about it here w/pics...

Re: Don't forget the pumpkins!

Good point! I have thought of this before seeing piles of pumpkins just used for decorations out in front of stores, etc., that at least they should be composted. I am doing my part by bringing home the 5 pumpkins that were decoration at my church for my compost pile.

Re: Don't forget the pumpkins!

Right, I agree with you! It is bad throw away the food! There are many ways to recycle pumpkins. For example if you have chickens, you can give the pumpkins to them as food.
