Make Your Own Bird Seed

Make your own bird seed by saving the pulp and seeds from squash and other vegetables and spread it thinly on a plate or tray. Then leave the tray in a gas oven overnight. The pilot light generates enough heat to dry the pulp and make it easy to pick out the seeds. If you have a pilotless gas oven or an electric one, you can dry the seeds by setting the oven at its lowest temperature and heating them for several hours.

That's a pretty great idea! Especially when my garden has an abundance of squash and zucchini!
