    Question about gardening....help without laughing!!

    Please don't laugh at my question . I am starting my garden and Christopher want to plants pumkins. On the back of the pack it says to hill them.What does that mean? Does it mean to make a small hill?Plant them on a hill or is it gardening talk that I just don't understand?? Like I said, PLEASE don't laugh . TIA!

    You were right - you make a hill of dirt and plant a few in each hill. They will run (I'm sure you knew that) so you make your hills several feet apart. Now, I will say, we used to just plant them in rows, though, just taller than our average rows (so they were hilled rows, I guess LOL) and the rows were spaced farther apart than our other rows and they did just fine, too. Having them in hills makes it easier to water several at once (if you water by hand, that is), too.
    Raising children is like being pecked to death by chickens.

    I won't laugh... DS wanted to plant corn. We just threw the seeds in the dirt and covered them plus put a little fertlizer in there. I think he TOTALLY expects to have stalks with corn cobs growing!!! He got so excite yesterday when he saw these long tall stalks... but they were the sunflowers-LOL! Just see what happens.
