Great newsletter!! Peter K. (We like this as it sums up what a lot of readers have said.)
Just wanted to let you know that I find your pumpkin site very helpful. Surprisingly, I started growing pumpkins last year on accident, the previous year having thrown an old jack ‘o’ lantern in my garden the rest is history. Similarly, this year I am growing yet another accidental pumpkin which is doing great and I am also growing a Lumina Pumpkin plant on the roof of my studio in a kiddie pool. We thought the leaves my help shade the studio when the summer days burn hot. However the leaves to the Lumina don’t seem to be as large as my orange pumpkins. Rhoda J.
As a first time pumpkin experimenter, I was thrilled to see your extensive site, which answered many questions for me. Thanks, Marsha C. in Ocala, Fla.
