My fancy French pumpkin (Musque de Provence Pumpkin seeds from High Mowing Organic Seeds) plant officially has two pumpkins growing. I’ve got to recommend High Mowing Organic Seeds’ site to go and see cool vegetables you may have never seen or heard of, or if you had, you may not have known their names. I will gladly accept all kinds of seeds to try and grow next season. Hint, hint. Maybe for Christmas?

I noticed the first pumpkin developing at the end of September so I’m hoping to have the first pumpkin ready around Thanksgiving. I’m not holding my breath. Luckily I adore pumpkins so much I would be happy to have one any time of year (pumpkin pie, pumpkin, bread, pumpkin scones, pumpkin soup, pumpkin curry) even if it’s closer to Christmas. Maybe we’ll have a Christmas pumpkin instead of a tree this year?

Perhaps next year I’ll attempt to start them even earlier and hope for the best.
