National Pumpkin Day

Since pumpkins can be grown on every continent except Antarctica, it makes sense that they are the veritable harbingers of Autumn and the harvest.

To celebrate this multi-purpose squash, you could carve a jack o’lantern. But you could also enjoy a food, dessert or drink made of pumpkin or roast the seeds for a tasty snack.

*Note to gardeners: Pumpkins are a good, relatively fast- decaying fertilizer. Just chop into manageable pieces and scatter over soil.
