Carving pumpkins is lots of fun and there are no end of suggestions as to what images to cut out from these autumnal vegetables. Technically, pumpkins are a fruit but let’s not get bogged down in botany!
After Halloween, many pumpkins end up being discarded, sometimes in the bin but hopefully in compost heaps. And there’s nothing wrong with a compost heap, we have a large one that supports our allotment.
But that’s not the only use for them. Our animals love them. Here are some photos of piggy fun with pumpkins.
