Hello Kids. So you have your seedling in the ground by now.  Feel free to send us pictures so we can post them on our Facebook for you.

Here is part 2 for you to help your pumpkin grow.

For nice even looking fruits, carefully rotate them as they develop and harden to avoid flattening. Place plywood underneath the developing pumpkins to help prevent rot due to contact with the soil.

Pumpkins require sunlight to harden or cure the shell.

When your fruit is developing but still soft and small, try lightly drawing your name into the skin and watch it grow with the pumpkin.

Watch for our next tips of problem solving that may come about with gardening..
