Can We Make Compost of Rotten Pumpkins? - Pet and Hobby 12

Starting rotten of pumpkins

Our Halloween pumpkins are rotting now, we just put them on the backyard. Some will decayed quickly, and we think decayed pumpkins enrich our backyard soil.

We saw wild animal attracted to our rotten “jack o lantern,” its seem like a delicious snacks for:

- squirrels

- raccoon

- rats

- birdseed

- other wild animals

Many people reuse rotten pumpkins for many purposes include farmers to feed their:

- cattle

- pigs

- other livestock


Three pumpkins in the corner

Some neighbors use rotten pumpkins to create compost. They use “composter” with price from US$ 10 to less than US$ 100, depend on size.

Chopping the pumpkins with a shovel, put into the “composter,” and then let them continue to process to rot.

It takes about several months for pumpkins to be composted. If composter has aerator, then the process will be faster.

Just to remind that make sure no wax on pumpkins flesh. It will slow the compost process, and even toxic to creatures.

What are you doing with your rotten pumpkins if you have once?

  2. Making compost is a great idea! We don’t usually get a pumpkin in whole so no rotting pumpkins here. Instead we get in a can or pie form :-)

  3. In my town pumpkins are given to farmers for the animals to enjoy. Only ones that aren't contaminated are accepted though. - Margy

  6. The zoo loves them! We have two compost. Although, we rarely have pumpkins around anymore. I have a friend who loves to grow pumpkins with his mom. We love roasted pumpkins. When we do have pumpkin it is a process breaking it down to even compost.

  8. It's good to make a compost or give pumpkins to animals once you have no use for them any more. Nowadays people are more and more eager to recycle everything rather than just throwing it away. 🍎 Composting is great!

  9. Pumpkins are good for composting. You can save the seeds to replant again the next year.

  18. Tanza, We took our pumpkins and gourds to a local animal rescue farm where they use them to supplement their feed for the goats and pigs. That's my kind of recycling! Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
