This year we decided to plant a few pumpkin seeds and see what happened. We have had good pumpkin crops in the past and some yeasr where none grew at all. This year we had a total of 8. I used one to make pumpkin pies already and one started to go bad before we picked it. These are the remaining ones. We will carve one for Halloween and I will use the others to make pumpkin puree to freeze and use later for more pumpkin pies.
