The Carthage FFA, which is located in SW Missouri, has recently acquired 3-4 acres next to our school.  The local farmer who is allowing the use of this land would like to see it developed into a school garden.  After much discussion with our Ag Dept and the school board it was decided to turn this into a pumpkin patch. We will be planting later this month and would like to make sure we got our "pumpkins in a row" before we start!


What we are asking for is any advice for growing pumpkins?  This first year will definitely be a learning experience for us, but we would really like to avoid learning the hard way!  Any advice is appreciated!!!!
