I've planted my pumpkins. They are Cinderella pumpkins and should be ready in time for Halloween. That's my favorite time of year AND my favorite Disney princess (if I have to pick).
I made room for 3 hills in the onion patch right next to the trimmed petunias. 3 hills - Anastasia, Drizella, and Cinderella. The package says that they are "charming" French heirloom. I've never known a pumpkin to be charming so this should be interesting.
They should mature in 110 days. Lake Valley Seed Co. in Boulder, Colorado recommends to set the fruits upright while they are still young for the best shaped fruit. They also instruct that for large pumpkins only 1 or 2 fruits should be allowed to develop per vine. Sprouts should be poking out in 10-15 days. We'll see.
I use Dr. Earth fertilizer. It's very pricey. I'm thinking of switching to "road apple tea".
