Fall Composting:

Composting Pumpkins

Instead of throwing pumpkins in the trash turn them into something useful….compost for your garden!

Steps:

  • Remove lights, candles, or any other decoration in your pumpkin.
  • If you don’t already have a compost, find a shady spot in your garden.
  • Smash it up! Break it into smaller pieces to increase surface area helping it break down faster.
  • Loosely cover with a carbon source material such as fallen leaves.
  • Let nature take over! Use finished compost in gardens or flower beds.
