    Tips for keeping your pumpkins & ornamental squash fresh

    1. Keep them dry – especially underneath. Moisture from below will begin decomposition and rotting.
    2. Do not mar the skin – pumpkins have thick outer skin for protection. If the skin is scraped, scratched or poked the pumpkin will begin to rot.
    3. Don’t waste them – bake them! Many of the pumpkins and ornamental squash are tasty and great for baking after the season.

     

    Happy Pumpkin Season!
