We are trying our hand at growing our own pumpkins this year. They can be so expensive and we really love carving them and decorating with them in the fall. I actually grew some once when I was in first grade. It was super easy and they grew like weeds! I saved seeds from our pumpkins last year, planted them in a plastic cup to get them started and now we transfered them to their little area in the yard.
I hope they survive! I'll keep you updated.
