The New Pumpkin Patch

This year’s new pumpkin patch is planted.

As you may know, pumpkins grow on vines, which means they take up a lot of space. I always plant my pumpkin patch in a roomy bed that can accommodate a large crop of big, colorful fruits. This year, I created a new space, down by the chicken coops, next to the vegetable gardens.

I wanted to share how this year’s pumpkin patch was planted, and some of the varieties that should be ready to harvest in 75 to 100 days. There is still time to get your seeds in the ground - I hope these photos offer some gardening inspiration…
