Q: "Can I grow the seeds saved from last year's Halloween pumpkin?"
Can I grow the seeds saved from last year's Halloween pumpkin?
—Alyssa Guilino, Alexandria, VA.
As long as you've kept them in a cool, dry, dark place, pumpkin seeds can be planted when the heavy spring rains are over and temperatures regularly reach into the 70s. The day before planting, discard any shriveled or discolored seeds and soak the rest in warm water to speed sprouting. Plant them 11⁄2 inches deep in rich, well-watered soil where they'll get at least six hours of sun a day. You'll be rewarded with a crop of pumpkins in about four months. —The Editors
