The Secret to making pumpkins last through the season!

Hey guys! Yesterday on Instagram I shared a few tips for keeping your real pumpkins alive
throughout the Fall season! And by throughout the fall season, I mean at least until the end of Thanksgiving.

 I actually discovered this trick a few years ago and have been doing it for the past 2 years.
My pumpkins always last through the season and I'm always able to feed them to the Sheep when the
season is over because they're still fresh.


I prefer this method to using Vaseline or bleach for that reason.
The Sheep like to eat them and I can't  feed them to them if they're covered in bleach and Vaseline.
So this way I'm able to keep them looking fresh and pretty for a long time and they can still eat them.
It's a win-win!


So there are a few different ways you can keep them alive and looking fresh for a longer amount of time.




Step 1-  as soon as you buy your pumpkins at the store and bring them home,
bring them into your kitchen and put them in the sink.
I always have a good scrub brush on hand and love my scrub brush from Grove collaborative.
I use Mrs. Meyers apple cider dish soap but you can use any dish soap you have on hand.
After you scrub your pumpkins wipe them down with a paper towel until they're dry.
Make sure they're good and dry before you move on to step 2.


Step 2-  now that your pumpkins are for the most part clean, you can do one of two things.
You can soak them in about 1 cup of bleach and water until they're covered for about an hour.  
This will sanitize the pumpkin and kill any bacteria still living on it.
Bleach is a great way to keep your pumpkins alive longer if you won't be eating them we're
feeding them to animals at the end of the season.
I knew I had to find another option.

Drum roll please.......

Olive oil!!!

So I take about 1 teaspoon or tablespoon depending on the size of your pumpkins and
how many you're doing, and a clean cloth and wipe the pumpkins with olive oil
It doesn't matter what kind. Any olive oil will do.
Olive oil acts as a protective barrier and for some reason
I noticed the squirrels don't bother my pumpkins at all when they're covered in olive oil.
I use olive oil for lots of things so it only made sense to try it out on pumpkins to.
Another plus to using olive oil besides just helping them last a little longer,
the olive oil gives them a little extra shine and brings out the beautiful colors!


That’s it you're done!  

See! Who knew it would be so easy to keep your pumpkins alive and help them last a little longer
so you can enjoy them all through October and into November!
If you have any tips or tricks for keeping calm he's alive longer I would love to hear them!
Drop a comment for me below or message me on Instagram I love hearing from you guys!  
if you've tried this method already I'd love to hear what you think about it and if it works for you!


Happy fall ya'll!
