The ultimate guide to growing pumpkins!  Plus a free Burpee pumpkin guide!

I was super excited last summer when we had a few volunteer pumpkins come up.  I love decorating with pumpkins in the fall & homegrown pumpkins are the best!

I was then super disappointed when the pumpkin vines died early on & never produced a single pumpkin!  

I know it's early, but I'm determined to grow pumpkins next year!   

I'm always looking ahead & planning for next year's garden.  Adding to the excitement is that Burpee released their 2022 catalog already! 








I want to be more intentional with my garden next year so I'm doing a lot of research.  I'm planning on buying a lot of my seeds online from Burpee so I wanted to compare varieties.

To compare pumpkin varieties, I made a super simple spreadsheet.  It lists the variety of pumpkin, the days to maturity, the fruit weight, the mature spread, & the mature weight.  I can then look over everything & pick what will best fit my needs this upcoming growing season.

 I'm making this spreadsheet available here as a free download.  It's a PDF with clickable links to each pumpkin variety.  You can also print it out & go over everything.  I plan on printing mine out & doing a lot of highlighting to decide what I'm going to plant.

I'm making this available now in case you're an early bird like me & want to get a head start on the next growing season.  You can also save the PDF & use it whenever you want!
