So I dug up some of the garden and planted some JARRA pumpkin seeds.
Let’s see how they go. Here is a little information about Jarrah Pumpkins.
Plant seeds directly in the garden, in fertile soil
Pumpkins need plenty of room
Plant 4-6 seeds in a group about 3 inches apart. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil and firm lightly.
Should see seedlings in 7-14 days.
Do not plant pumpkins and other squash family crops in the same spot 2 years in a row.
Thin seedlings to 2-3 per group when they are 1-2 inches high
Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Keep the soil moist but not saturated
Pumpkins have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers will open first and the female flowers will open later. The female flower has a miniature fruit behind the blossom. DO NOT DISTURB plant
If you are trying to grow extra-large pumpkins, allow only one fruit per plant to mature
Pumpkins are ready to pick when the rinds are hard and a rich shade of orange or white depending on the variety
Cut pumpkins from the vine with a pruning shears, leaving about 3 inches of stem attached
Allow the pumpkins to cure in the sun for a week to harden skin
