A question about pumpkins
I am going to put my squash and pumpkins in the garden tomorrow. They're all nicely hardened off and doing wonderfully. I plan on planting a mixture of summer and winter squashes and pumpkins. Some of the plants are bush varieties and others are going to be sprawlers! Since I don't have the largest garden in the world (more's the pity), I'm trying to plan my space really well this year. I'm going to put my bush-habit plants towards the back of the garden and let the vining plants take over the middle of the garden. But I'm also growing pumpkins, which are VIGOROUS viners. I originally was going to plant them at the edges of the garden and let them take over the yard, but then I had a thought. Could I grow them on a trellis? Would that work for a pumpkin? Or for a winter squash, for that matter? Here's what I'm trying to grow:
Early Prolific Straightneck squash
Black Beauty zucchini
Gold Nugget squash
Lumina Pumpkin (2 plants)
Can I grow my Luminas' on a trellis and leave the Butternut and Potimarron have more room in their row?
I'm going to grow my cantaloupe, watermelon, tiger melon, and cukes on a trellis this year. I'd be super excited if I could grow my pumpkins on a trellis too!
