Halloween is over - what are you doing with your jack-o'-lantern? Every November, millions of pumpkins are thrown away or left to rot.

Put your scary pumpkin to good use and put it in a compost pile! Earth 911 has some good tips on composting a pumpkin, and if you don't keep a compost pile ask around and see if your gardener friends do.

Your pumpkin could have a second life, helping grow more pumpkins for next year!
