David shares an amusing validation of our pumpkin-growing methods:
Good afternoon — of course I thought of you when I read this science article extolling the modern potential of pumpkins as a superfood. But, they buried the lede!!
“In some areas, such as tropical Goa in India, pumpkin vines seem to grow effortlessly from seeds left in compost bins after the flesh is used to make curries.”
Like you, they too have replicated Cucurbita moschata var. compostia “Effortless” 😊
Hope you feel scientifically validated.”
Thank you. That cracked me up.
I actually piled up some grass clippings, chicken bones and 1.5 banana boxes full of shrimp shells at the edge of the garden today and I plan to throw pumpkin waste on top of it, once we make it into a much bigger mound of garden prunings and kitchen waste.
As we keep finding out, there’s no pumpkin vine like a compost pile pumpkin vine.
