I’m trying to work out what to do with all the pumpkin once I cut it. I was manly just wanting the seeds.May 12, 2012 at 1:42 am #503647BlueWrenMember
Do you have a worm farm? I cook pumpkin in the microwave with some water then mash it up to a firm slop.Worms adore it! :tup: Chooks doubtless would as well.May 12, 2012 at 1:50 pm #503648IdunaMember
No, my worm farm died a couple winters ago from a white worm infestation. I think it’s going to be too much for just 4 chickens.May 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm #503649dianneParticipant
could you freeze some into meal sizes and then defrost for chickensMay 12, 2012 at 5:42 pm #503650Bandicoot ValleyMember
Bob #2 got smashed with the axe a couple of days ago, put through the mulcher & fed to the chooks. They loved it. Got a nice lot of big fat seeds from it. Bob #1 still to go.May 12, 2012 at 8:17 pm #503651karyn26Member
Thanks for the idea BW,I was also wondering what to do with my BOB.
I have 2 worm beds and plenty of hungry chooks who will do it justice.
BL good looking BOB.May 29, 2012 at 6:25 pm #503652AllenRiderMember

2. SOW SEEDS
3. TRANSPLANT SEEDLINGS
4. PROTECT SEEDLINGS

Well I’ve just noticed my BOB seeds were going mouldy.MAybe I didnt clean them and dry them properly.
So I re-washed and put them in a diluted water/vinegar solution then rinsed and am re-drying.
Hopefully they will be ok as there is a lot of them,and I’d like to use them next time.May 31, 2012 at 10:22 pm #503654HummerKeymaster
Well I didn’t need to take an axe to my BOB.. it was quite easy to cut up with the biggest knife I own & the skin was not tough either 🙂
Last night I baked some and made pumpkin soup in the slow cooker.. it smells delightful, coming home to soup already made 🙂 haven’t tasted it yet, but won’t be long.
I was surprised at the fact that there were not many seeds in this pumpkin.. around 100 I think, which sounds like heaps, it just didn’t seem like many at the time & in my experience, normal pumpkins have more…June 1, 2012 at 1:00 am #503655BelMember
Yeah, I didn’t think mine had many seeds for its size either. All my seeds went mouldy too 🙁 I thought they were dry, but obviously they weren’t. I saved 10 or so from the top, but the rest had to go into the compost. I think they had retained some moisture inside and that’s why they went off. I’ve learnt for next time – they do take a long time to dry. I hope you enjoy your soup Humbug.June 2, 2012 at 1:08 am #503656mistyhollowsMember
Mmmm Bob soup in the slow cooker. I think Bob might meet his end this week 😆 I kind of enjoy having him hanging around on top of the dogs bed. We get so many comments from visitors “What is THAT?” :ohmy: :laugh:June 2, 2012 at 1:16 am #503657BlueWrenMember
……and the dog?? :shrug:June 2, 2012 at 8:58 pm #503658mistyhollowsMember
:laugh: BW the dog or Bob???
It’s one of those timber indoor dog beds so bob sit’s nicely on top while the fluff ball snores underneath.
