Step 1: Materials
2. old pumpkin
Step 2: Get Started
First, cut out the stem, then cut a ring about a 1/3 of the way down your pumpkin
Step 3: Arrange
Now take out the seeds, (if you want to grow a pumpkin then you can leave in a few seeds and it will grow into a pumpkin plant!) Then, cut your ring of pumpkin into 1/4ths and lay them around the inside of your "pumpkin bowl".
Step 4: Plant
Then fill your pumpkin up with soil and put in the seeds (if you don't want to just grow a pumpkin.)
Step 5: Dig
Dig a hole that you pumpkin can fit snuggly into so that the top of the pumpkin is level to the rest of the soil.
Step 6: Let the Magic Happen!
Now just water your plant and wait for it to decompose, it is some of the best fertilizer that money can buy but the best part is that you don't even need to buy it! also, if you don't get pumpkins then you can just ask your neighbors for their pumpkins! I hope that you enjoyed this instructable if you did then don't forget to vote for it!
