I am thinking about planting a few pumpkins in the garden next year. This year we spent $25 dollars on three pumpkins. Talk about outrageous. The largest and most expensive pumpkin was carved and will not in anyway benefit our family. The smaller pumpkins will be baked and will hopefully become home made pie or bread in a few weeks.

A package of pumpkin seeds will cost me less than $2.00, so if I do decide to plant pumpkins the decision will not really cost me anything. I have plenty of space to add to my garden so I will not have to forfeit planting anything in order to add pumpkins. If the pumpkins don’t grow and we decide that we want to bake or carve next year we can always buy a few to serve our purposes.

Planting our own pumpkins is worth trying.
