1. Save the seeds from when you carve a jack-o-lantern or use the seeds from a decorative gourd you get at the market.
2. Wash the seeds and dry them.
3. Keep them somewhere safe until spring.
4. When it's warm enough (but probably not later than mid-May) dig a little hole and drop three seeds in each "nest". (Probably about three seed nests will do the trick).
5. Pumpkins and squash like hot weather, direct sunlight and lots of water.
6. They also like sandy soil, but we can't always get what we want, right?
