Pumpkin

  1. A Description of Pumpkins

    History: Pumpkins are winter squash that have acquired the common name "pumpkin" but are, nonetheless, squash. They are native to the Americas and, along with corn and beans, were grown as "The Three Sister" by First Nations people for thousands of years. Apparently, 400 years ago, people often cut holes in their sides, scooped out the seeds, stuffed the cavities with apples and spices and baked them whole as pies. Cultivation: Easy to grow. Seeds may be started indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or direct-sown when temperatures and the soil have warmed. Sow seed 1-2" deep and thin to 3-4' apart. Companions: corn, beans. Nasturtiums and marigolds deter squash bugs and other pests and oregano helps overall growth.
