broots Cochrane, ON (Zone 2b) Wow Pam, didn't realize that you would have enough time for pumpkins to ripen in your zone. Good for you.
Lilypon Moose Jaw, SK (Zone 3b) Thanks LInda Ü
With 101 to 110 days to maturity I didn't think they'd have time either. Luckily Rouge Vif d'Etampes' took off, right after I direct sowed it, and never looked back (thankfully because here the growing season window and it's days to maturity are the same).
It is a real treasure to me because I saved the seeds from a pumpkin I purchased last Hallowe'en.
