What would harvest time look like without the pumpkins piled high in grocery stores and farm stands and carved on the lawn?  Pumpkins are actually a type of nutritious squash commonly eaten around the world.  In America we reserve the name pumpkin for round, orange squashes that are used for pies, soups and for carving.  And don’t forget the seeds, which can be roasted and flavored in myriad ways.

Companions: basil, beans, cabbage, corn, eggplant, marigold, peas, squash.
