Nothing says fall like front walks and porches lined with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes grinning back at us. But once November hits, most residents first inclination is to toss their rotting gourds in the trash, but when we do that the pumpkin adds extra weight and takes up wasted space in our bags and landfills.

The trick is to compost your pumpkin, so it becomes a treat for your garden.

Don’t have a compost at home? Have no fear, Ontario County has got you covered.
