Lili's fertile thought for the day

The Pumpkin Cycle: buy a wedge of pumpkin that has seeds in it from the supermarket - use pumpkin as an ingredient in a delicious Thai curry - add the peel and seeds to a kitchen compost bin - bury compost in garden where it wont attract mice or insects - pumpkins seeds germinate and emerge from the soil - pinch out all but the two strongest plants - water remaining plants - bees pollinate flowers - pumpkins grow - harvest pumpkins when the stems die off - use pumpkin to make pumpkin scones - repeat steps three to ten - use pumpkin to make tasty pumpkin soup - repeat steps three to ten........

Did you know it's International Composting Awareness Week
