Disposing of pumpkin after Hollloween
It was, I think, a year ago, when we last discussed what was the proper method of disposing of pumpkins after we had used the pulp, or however we had used the plant.
Some said they could be thrown onto the compost pile, and either chopped up further to advance the breakdown or not.
Had we come to some conclusion at that time? I cut up 5 pumpkins we had used for our Jack-O-Lanterns last year; this year we were away and didn't have any need. But, this past summer I experienced no growing of pumpkin seeds in my compost...I had professed the whole plant could be thus disposed of. Seems my compost did not produce what many had said would happen.
I'm wondering if others have had it the same way or have they indeed had pumpkins growing in their compost.
