God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures. To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. Gardening is the work of a lifetime: you never finish. “To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselvesMahatma Gandhi once said.

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. 

My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece. All gardening is landscape painting. Giving up your ego is the shortest way to unification with nature. A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift. Above all it teaches entire trust.

Gardens are a form of autobiography. There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments. If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. 

You can’t buy happiness but you can buy plants and that’s pretty much the same thing. Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination. Plants cry their gratitude for the sun in green joy. The Earth laughs in flowers.

Let no one think that real gardening is a bucolic and meditative occupation. It is an insatiable passion, like everything else to which a man gives his heart. ''If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden''- Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Pumpkins thrives well in a wide variety of soils but sandy loam soil with good organic matter is best suited. Soil with good drainage and the PH range of 6 to 7 is ideal for pumpkin cultivation. The field should be leveled to a fine tilth, well-drained and fertile soil. 

Uncut pumpkins can be stored up to three months in a dry dark cool place, in fact, the longer you store them the sweet and nuttier the flavour becomes. 

Beta-carotene, which gives pumpkins their orange colour, is a free-radical fighting antioxidant. Human body convert ingested beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is essential for healthy skin and eyes, while also strengthening the immune system. They are good for your hearing! 

Pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses. The high water content of pumpkins means they’re good for you while also being low in calories.

Although we often think of pumpkins as vegetables, they're actually fruits! Once they sprout, pumpkins take between 90 and 120 days to reach maturity.
