    Great tips, Jane! My neighbor planted some seeds, but hasn't seen fruit yet! I'll share this with her!

      @Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads I agree - that's what I told her - just like the squash plants - I told her not to give up yet :)

    I grow pumpkins every year, use all of them. I do save the seed, but the second harest's seed, will produce white pumpkins along with orange & some get a very hard skin like spaghetti squash. I really enjoy growing them .

      @Lori Beckman Have you ever had a yellow pumpkin? I had one a few years ago and this year we have one that looks like an over grown zucchini. These were all from the year before. This year my hubby put Johnny sweet squash and pumpkin in the same hill. The yellow pumpkin was hard as a rock and you could just barely scrape out the seeds when my daughter was making it into a jack'o'lantern for her son

      @Marilyn A Yes, definitely too late this year because we planted our seeds in July. In earlier years, we have planted in June and that was too early for us in South Carolina. Planting pumpkins requires some planning!

    Thanks Jane, I clipped this to remind me for next spring. It would be fun for a change.
