And come next Thursday, the pumpkin’s season will be past. Replaced by tinsel, greenery, glitter and twinkling lights.

Wondering what to do with your pumpkins after Halloween?

Well, you could compost them or plant them in your garden. Or make tasty pumpkin butter. Or oozy gooey pumpkin crunch.

Cut them up and roast the pumpkin seeds.

And actually, you can compost your hammered pumpkin after the kids are done with it. Just be sure to remove the golf tees.
