We finally decided to cut open our pumpkins and see how many seeds are inside. Big pumpkins have larger seeds than smaller pumpkins. We made guesses as to how many seeds were in each one. The smaller pumpkin had 259 seeds, and the larger contained **469** seeds! I don't think we're planting all of the seeds next year. But we'll sure be able to be choosy and select the nicest-looking ones for springtime.
