Making the Most of Fall Pumpkin’s

Here’s a Halloween challenge for people who like to decorate with natural materials and don’t like waste. Cooking pumpkins make great fall decorations. They are smaller than typical jack-o-lanterns and are super fun arranged with small colorful gourds. When done, cooking pumpkins can be cooked and frozen or pressure canned for later use. For safety and best quality make sure that the pumpkins have been stored indoors and are still in perfect condition. For details on preserving pumpkins go to: HGIC 3281, Preserving Pumpkins and Winter Squash.
