Just wondering what everyone does with their pumpkins after the holiday? Do they just stay outside and turn moldy and yukky, or do you put them in the garbage or what? I guess some people try to make them last until Thanksgiving, but I don't know if its possible in AZ. What do you do?

If it wasn't turned into a Jack-o-lantern, I'd turn the flesh into pie and dry roast the seeds. Both the meat and the seeds are very nutritious and tasty.

We have lots of rabbits that come in the yard to eat the lawn, so I cut a couple small pieces for them and toss the rest. The rabbits go for it big time.

Reminds me of the in-laws of one of my cousins, who were, shall we say, sometimes overly frugal. They told us once that after Halloween, they'd drive along the alleys and pick up jack o lanterns that had been thrown out, and take them home and make pies.

It's quite another thing to make use of your own, since, as they say, you know where it's been.

I quit buying them after I looked out the window and saw a group of javelinas eating my carefully carved jack-o-lanterns for breakfast.

You wont have a pumpkin last more than 3 days after it's carved in AZ. We threw ours away today that we carved this weekend, all rotted and falling apart.
