Growing Pumpkins


Those with a green – or orange – thumb in your family, will love to grow pumpkins. Save the seeds after you carve your pumpkins, clean the pulp off, and lay the seeds out in a single layer to dry out for one month. Then you can either save the seeds in an envelope to plant late next spring or you can plant them indoors and transplant your pumpkin outside when it's warmer again. Pumpkins need at least six hours a day of direct sunlight to grow. Maybe by next fall, you'll have a giant pumpkin!
