I save all kinds of old alley chairs to use for holding pumpkins,etc...in the garden,too! Love the heirloom hollyhock, too. Where do you get the French pumpkin seeds from?
I am glad I am not the only one! The French pumpkin seeds came originallly from Seed Saver's Exchange.http://www.seedsavers.org/products.asp?dept=41

Moschata, 100-110 days variety, if you want o smeak a peak of them all finished.
