My son has finally taken a real interest in gardening. Although he’s always played in the dirt with me, this is the first year he’s really interested in playing a role in growing the produce that makes its way into our kitchen.
Uzzi and I love this time of year because soon we’ll be eating yummy pumpkins. Pumpkins are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene, the USDA says, and we think they just taste good!
I’m so disappointed that we didn’t get any of our own pumpkins this season! I planted five pumpkin vines, including an Atlantic Giant, a Howden, and some others I don’t remember, but none of them managed to set any fruit.
