  1. What happened to them?

  2. Last October we had a pumpking carving party and all the pumking guts (including the seeds) went into the worm bin. Pumpkin seeds are pretty tough and take a while to break down in a compost pile. I used compost from the worm bin as the base layer for my vegetable garden this year. On top of that I put about 6 inches of regular soil. Evidently, these pumpkin 'volunteers' were still viable and pushed through 6 inches of top soil to reach the surface. Pumpkins can turn into giants and I didn't want them growing in the middle of my lettuce patch so I pulled this up and gave them the boot.

  3. oh, obviously pumpkin isn't spelled with a 'g' on the end. I guess that's what I get for typing too quickly...
