    Have these and can't get rid of them.

The Blue Moon pumpkin is quite an interesting pumpkin. The outside is blue and the flesh is cantaloupe's orange. It's edible, for pie's etc and very cool to decorate with.

11 things to think about when planning a raised bad garden

Add cross-bracing If your bed is longer than 8', or taller than 18", it's a good idea to use cross-bracing. This will prevent the bed from bowing outwards in the center of the span. Use a hacksaw to cut the aluminum flat stock to the exact width of the bed. Drill a hole in each end, and use a 1" stainless screw to attach the cross-brace to the posts at either side of the span.

Grow carrots in a pot.

Soak carrots seeds overnight to speed germination. Carrots make a great fall crop. Sow seeds 10-12 wks before the first expected frost. @ July or August. Carrots need full sun. Carrots do best in sandy, well-drained soil. Thin as they grow. Mulch every few weeks with compost. Carrots rarely need water, but too much moisture can be a problem. Keep soil well-drained to prevent most diseases. If you mulch your plants, fertilizers are generally unnecessary.

Cucumbers are sweeter when you plant them with sunflowers! Remember cucumbers are heavy feeders so be sure to feed them often. I use a weak solution of miracle grow or the generic/store brand weekly and this year I have gotten more cucumbers than ever. Cucumbers need lots of rich soil, lots of manure and heat and water.

When a cucumber is taken from the vine let it be cut with a knife, leaving about an eighth of an inch of the cucumber on the stem, then slit the stem with the knife from its end to the vine leaving a small portion of the cucumber on each division and on each separate slip there will be a new cucumber as large as the first.
