It’s Pumpkin Time!

Please don’t bleach your pumpkins. When you’re ready to get rid of them you have lots of options: put them in your compost pile, find an area in your garden where the critters can eat them, give them to someone who has as a garden area to put them in, even just chop them up and bury them in your garden where they can decompose and enrich the soil.

Happy digging in the dirt!

May be an image of text that says 'PSA: PLEASE!!!! DO NOT bleach you your pumpkins to make them last longer!! We've seen this tip being shared all over social media this season! Please remember pumpkins are food, especially to lots of the wildlife! Deer, squirrels, raccoons, possums, mice, rats, chipmunks, birds, and even bugs. We deliberately stick them outside somewhere where wildlife can access them and we DO NOT want our wildlife eating bleached pumpkins!!! Instead, try using vinegar. 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water will work just as well. Thanks!'
