Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before the last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cells/pots, thin to the strongest seedling.

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row, 4-5 hills 

Harvest: When skin turns color and rinds are hard. Leave a few inches of the stem on for best storage potential.

Tips: Heavy feeders, requiring high nitrogen. Plant the Wee Be Little Pumpkin into fertile soil or amend with compost or manure. Heavy water needs, mulch, and supply adequate water, at least 1” per week for optimum growth.
