How can I reuse or recycle pumpkins?
A bit of an obvious one considering the date.
So presumably people scooped out the seeds for eating/planting, and made soups or pies or other yummy things from the flesh before carving the skin into a Halloween lantern — but what can be done with the outer casing afterwards?
Obviously it’s a firm contender for the compost heap but I wondered if there was anything else it could be used for instead.
A container for growing plants in the greenhouse over winter that can then be planted out in the ground in the spring? Can it be dried into anything fun?
