Every year we plant several hills of pumpkins so that we can sell them in the fall. We put the first ones out about ten days ago and so far have sold enough to make next year's seed money for the entire vegetable garden. The white ones are catching on; in fact, we seem to be selling more white ones than orange ones this year.
We added small gourds this year also.
We sometimes put squash out also, but this year we didn't get many.
We have the pumpkins out by the road and run this on the honor system. In the four or five years we've been doing this, we've only had one "incident". Last year someone took between 15 and 20 pumpkins without paying for them, and we later found them smashed along the road. For the most part, people around here are very honest, so we will continue to operate it the same way.
