PIGS LOVE PUMPKINS

Contact your local animal farmers who own pigs and chickens, these two animals love them as a healthy treat. Drop your left over pumpkins for them to eat!

CHICKENS LOVE A PUMPKIN

Turn old pumpkins into a rich soil amendment for next season’s vegetable garden. Cut the gourds into small pieces and either add them to the compost pile or bury them in a trench dug right into the garden bed.

Cut up the leftovers of your pumpkin – this will speed up composting time – and add it to the pile! If you don’t have a compost pile already thriving, it’s all about a balance of brown (leaves, wood chips) and green (grass trimmings, kitchen waste) plant matter get one started.
