I have never been able to grow things from seed. Botanically speaking I lack the green part of the thumb that allow seed cultivation. Give me a plant and I seem to be okay...but seeds, just haven't had much luck.
But last Halloween, when my dad and R carved pumpkins, he saved some seeds, took them home, let them air dry, and then mailed them to R a few weeks later.
We held on to the seeds and decided to plant them at the beginning of April. I set R's expectations low, telling him we would probably have to go to the nursery to get plants in May to plant in our garden. Yet, every morning for a few days R would ask, "are there pumpkins yet?" We don't have pumpkins yet, but I am amazed that I managed to get this far. Thanks Dad!
So here is update #1 on the Sweet Peas' pumpkin project:
They're actually growing!
