This is a first for me  but my granddaughters are fascinated.  When my pack of "especially for children" seeds arrived from Renee's Garden Seeds there was a pack of "Cinderella's Carriage Pumpkin" seeds.  My granddaughters and I planted 8 hills of seeds (2-3 seeds to a hill) around the outside of the square foot garden.

Within a few days the seeds had sprouted and we picked the best seedling on each hill and pulled out the other(s).  In no time at all this is what it looked like.

Where are these vines going?
I sort of knew that pumpkin vines take up room but now I am really curious as to how big these things are going to get!  I guess I sort of expected them to be miniatures.

Tiny start.

Here is our first little pumpkin.  I think there are others but this was the one out where I could see it.  We have some cool things to try if we get more than a couple of pumpkins.
