I had every intention of cooking up all the scrap pieces of my jack-o-lantern into yummy delicious treats… well, Halloween morning I woke up with full on chills, body aches, congestion… oh, yeah, the dreaded flu. The body aches and chills went away after a couple of days, but I swear I am still feeling the exhaustion aftermath. Anyway, in those couple of days, my pumpkin guts dried out, my seeds started sprouting, and my pumpkin started rotting. No problem. I blended up the seeds to prevent growth and I placed that, the pumpkin guts, and my pumpkin into the compost bin. It wasn’t the ideal solution to my pumpkin, but eventually all its parts will turn to loam and it will feed my future plants instead of releasing methane in a landfill. I hope you all had a happy holiday!!
