Planting Pumpkins at My Farm

This year’s pumpkin patches are planted.

As you may know, pumpkins grow on vines, which means they take up a lot of space. I always plant my pumpkin patches in roomy beds that can accommodate large crops of big, colorful fruits. We have two expansive areas where we like to plant our pumpkins - one is next to the chicken coops and the vegetable gardens, and the other is up behind my main greenhouse. Over the last few days, we planted lots and lots of seeds, and some of the varieties should be ready to harvest in about 100-days.
