2005_11_pumpkinsmash.jpgDid you carve a pumpkin early this week? And is it slowly becoming a shell of its Jack-o-lantern-ness? Before your pumpkin becomes an experiment in bacteria, why not take it to the Prospect Heights Community Farm Pumpkin Smash on Saturday! They say to "bring your rotten pumpkins to be composted," plus "there will be food and drinks and hot baked potatoes provided." Hot baked potatoes? In near-70 degree weather? Awesome! The event is from 2-5PM, at 252-256 St. Marks Ave. between Underhill and Vanderbilt Avenues.
