4. This is the first year I started taking other people's pumpkins, when they are clearly put out for trash. (I'm not taking them from their displays!). I've been roasted the seeds, and using the cooked flesh for baking. Have you ever taken someone's castoff pumpkin?

I haven't, and I think you're weird.

I haven't, but that's a good idea. It's a lot of super healthy food for free!
