What to do about Jack?
Wondering what to do about that pumpkin your little angels (or you) just carved? Well according to Jeff Yeager, who writes the green cheapskate blog on Daily Green - Use it All- he claims you can use it to make pie (puree) or make a casserole out of the parts you cut out of the pumpkin for the eyes nose and mouth, pickled pumpkin rinds and of course seeds. Recipes on his blog If you still aren’t convinced and want to find a more sustainable way to dispose of your Jack O’ Lantern , and you live in the Seattle Area, you can take it to the Night of 1,000- pumpkins Celebration at the Burien Interim Art Space (B/IAS) across from the Town Square Park in Downtown Burien. Remember to bring a candle to light your pumpkin and become a willing participant in an outdoor art project. They will gladly compost it for you, too.
The community Garden members will also be there to say goodbye to the garden. We don’t know if there will be a spot for the garden elsewhere in the city, the parks department is working hard on it. I am hoping for it. It has been a fun year. More about that in another post soon!
