Get a head start on spring by starting the seeds indoors in 4" peat pots about 2-3 weeks before the last spring frost or plant 2-3 seeds in each hill after last spring frost date. Space hills 15-20 feet apart. When plants are 3-4 inches high, thin to one plant per hill. Choose the strongest, healthiest plant. After the first pumpkin is set, remove all other fruit which may appear during the course of the growing season.
