So... back in the end of May I planted pumpkin seeds and 6 thriving plants grew up. Come the end of September, I had two orange fruits. I was happy to have something, but a bit underwhelmed by the size. The seed packet had advertised "head size" fruits, and while they might have been approximately head size, that's still too small for me. But that's not the interesting part. Fast forward to carving season, after I cut into it and pulled out all the seeds... to find many of them had already sprouted! Sad to have fewer seeds to eat, but happy to have the pumpkins at all.
