There are countless ways to put to good use all parts (rind, pulp, fibrous strands, and seeds) of a pumpkin. Here are just a few ways. We’d love to hear how your family uses pumpkins. Be sure to share your ideas in the comments area.
Compost Worm Food
Red wiggler compost worms LOVE pumpkin rind, or so I’ve read. I started my worm “farm” back in March, so this is the first real opportunity I’ve had to feed them this fall/harvest/Thanksgiving treat. They’ll be feasting on some pumpkin rinds very soon.
Don’t have compost worms? No problem! You can use the pumpkin for all sorts of decorative uses.
