Because of the space required, the pumpkin is not adapted to the small garden. If space is not limited, it can be planted in the garden.
Plant about the time corn is planted, and when planted alone, space 8 to 10 feet apart each way. Give pumpkins about the same fertilizer as squash. They are also subject to the same insects and diseases.
Pumpkins may be ideally planted with corn, and at the same time. Use five to six seed in hills 10 feet apart in every fourth row, and thin to one plant per hill when well established.
They may be canned or stored all winter in any dry, cool place where they will not freeze. A temperature of about 50 degrees is best.
