In the photo a home entry walkway is bordered with a bed used to grow strawberries in early summer and pumpkins for fall. A few tulips come through in spring to add some color to this garden. Talk about making good use of garden space for many purposes!
You may want to grow pumpkins for one or many uses including decoration, cooking and baking. Fruit size may also be important to you. Know that there are pumpkins to fit most any requirement.
All five varieties mentioned are All-America Selections winners that should grow well in the Intermountain West.
