The air smelled like pumpkins as we dug our hands into their gooey goodness and retrieved their seeds for next year. We did this both indoors and outdoors w/ both kindergarten classes. We grew a record number of pumpkins so there was a lot to work with! Seed to plant, plant to seed….

They really enjoy the sensation of wet pumpkin innards (well some do- a few watched in kinder-disgust). First we read this great book about pumpkins called Pumpkin Circle. It tells the whole story of growing and using one of our most favorite and decorative plants in the garden.
