Er, well, this ain't about that once alternative, later much heralded rock group, Smashing Pumpkins.

Well, now that some other vital family matters have been laid to rest, I'm back to wave at'chawll and -- Groan! -- meddle. Seems Y'awll have been "talking amongst your selves and chewing the fat about some interesting topics. But Our members of the wild, must eat too, just like we human beans, I do trumpet.

Thus this is about elephants and pumpkins-- a fruit which elephants love to smash.

Back in Corporate America, we never did establish any branches in the state of MA. But our Northeast Regional Director, told of a Boston tradition of some sort of pumpkin smashing festival.

With all due respect to The City's Audobon Zoo, I re-wind to one of America's most delightful zoo's, that of San Diego, California's.

After smashing 'em, the pachyderms would gorge themselves on the gourds.

So now that We have feed the wild, lettuce talk about feeding we human beans: Pumpkins:

Holy Peter pumpkin Eater, Batman! Well, I never knew who "Peter" was but, like elephants, I'll never forget one enterprising farmer who only veggies, learned of the vale of, and market for, pumpkin seeds. So, he carved out a patch of land solely devoted to pumpkins, Why? Only for their seeds. There once was a huge market for pumpkin seeds, that market being middle-men -- brokers, actually -- who would buy them for re-sale to the major processors, with one version being turned into a vvalued one: roasted pumpkin seeds.

So, in the main, I hold that We should not let anything go to waste-- with, in this case, pumpkins being the topic: Carve out some pulp for making pumpkin pies (heave on the cinnamon and nutmeg, please). The pulp, pureed -- I can attest -- makes excellent pumpkin soup. And, since We have fed the wild and we human beans, why not feed Mother Earth: Pumpkins (and other Stuff and Thangs) make for excellent compost.
