Re: If you love pumpkin seeds ...
Finn, be sure you plant a variety that yields a large kernel. I grew some incredible mammoth sunflowers in Salem, and harvested and processed a bunch of seed. Darn if a lot of them were empty -- and the ones that weren't had very small kernels. The commercial varieties should be available from seed vendors. They have nice flowers but tend to be low-growing. Just trying to save you some disappointment.
