Pie Pumpkin Seed Pack
PUMPKIN (Cucurbita pepo) (90 days)—

"On the day before Thanksgiving while we were living outside of Wooster, Ohio, on Munson Knob we realized that we forgot to get pie pumpkins to make pumpkin pies. We started driving south down the winding 83 Highway and came across a small Amish owned store that sold some basic produce. We went inside and the only two pumpkins in the store were behind the counter as decorations. The woman behind the counter did not hesitate to take them down and sell them to us at a made up price as they were not for sale or stocked in the store. They made a mighty fine pie and they have found a space in our pockets and our hearts ever since."-Buffalo Seed Company
