Pumpkins have always fascinated me. They are so colorful and pregnant with life with all those tasty seeds inside them. We remember these squash as a Halloween delight and often forget they are food. Above you see my pumpkin harvest this season. I love them!
This season I grew pumpkins at my extended farm acreage. In other words, I outgrew my own garden, so put the pumpkins up at my sister-in-laws house (a.k.a. my extended farm acreage). Here is how we planted the pumpkin seeds – PLANTING LINK.
Using Botanical Interests seeds, I grew several pumpkin varieties including Jarrahdale, an Australian heirloom that is a blue-ish gray color (and mine appears to have a smile in the photo above); Musquee de Provence, a terra cotta color flat cheese style pumpkin; Cinderella, a flat French heirloom pumpkin; Lumina, and amazingly cool white pumpkin; and Organic Sugar Pie, a delightful little pie pumpkin; and finally, the tiny Jack Be Little.
*Note – Because the FTC requires it, I am noting that Botanical Interests Seeds supplied seeds for this planting experience.
