October: What We’re Growing in our Backyard Oklahoma Urban Garden

October monthly article

October in Oklahoma is a beautiful time with amazing weather! Hopefully by now all your pumpkins are ready to be harvested and you can be festive for the fall holidays as well! 

Keep in mind when you carve your pumpkins for Halloween that you can save the seeds to make roasted pumpkin seeds. All you need to do is season clean, dry seeds and lay them flat on a baking sheet in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Not only do they taste great, but they have amazing health benefits! Check out our app for more recipes and ways to prepare your foods that you are growing in your garden! Don’t forget to use put all your leftover pumpkins into your compost as well!
