2021 Pumpkin Nook !!
Pumpkins are tender annuals. I know you're excited to start of your pumpkin patch. So am I. But, don't let that excitement cause you to plant them too early in the season. Frost will kill your plants. Cold temperatures can stunt their growth. It's best to wait until the overnight temperatures stay above forty degrees (F). It is critical to resist the temptation to plant pumpkins too early in the season. Plant them outdoors, only after all danger of frost has past. And, plan to cover them up on cold evenings.
Around the World!! We've discovered pumpkins growing on six of seven continents, all except Antarctica. Like you, gardeners of the world grow them for food and for fun.
Can you guess where this pumpkin patch is?
Pumpkins and your health... Growing pumpkins is fun. Like other gardening activities, researchers tell us its therapeutic. Eating pumpkins is healthy for you. Add a little pumpkin to your diet all year long.
