Hi Amanda,

I like pumpkin seeds, too. Every year in October when my family carves Halloween jack-o-lanterns, I separate the seeds and roasts them in the oven.

I store the roasted seeds in jars and eat them as snack food over several months.

It saddens me how many people just dump the carved out pumpkin material from their Halloween pumpkins, including all the seeds in the compost, or even the garbage.

If this is something you also care about, do you think it would make a good topic for a new blog post?

Cheers
Oliver

I see people do that too. Not sure about a blog post about it. I would like to see people through it in the compost instead of the landfill. At least that way the plants will eat the left over pumpkins.
