PUMPKIN DECORATION TIP – Rather than carving your pumpkins this year, why not decorate them on the outside instead? This way your pumpkin will last much longer and you can enjoy delicious pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup or other scrummy pumpkin recipes afterwards!
PUMPKIN WASTE – Every year, a colossal 18,000 tonnes of pumpkins end up in landfill – about 360 million portions of pumpkin pie! Let’s do what we can to help by eating our pumpkins instead!
NO-CARVE PUMPKIN DECORATION IDEAS – See here for inspiration for your no-carve pumpkin display – so much less mess than carving!!
We hope you enjoy the trail!
