Growing Instructions

Sow after last frost in well-composted hills of 3-4 plants (sow 6-8 seeds per hill, then thin), spacing hills about 4 feet apart. Yields 3-6 small pumpkins per plant, each weighing 4-5 pounds. Cure pumpkins by allowing them to sit in warm, dry, frost-free spot for about a week. Consume New England Pie Pumpkins within a couple of months, as this variety will not keep through the winter.

About the Art and Artist
Oil painting by Joan Lesikin. Born and raised in Rockland County, New York, Joan Lesikin now resides in lower Ulster County, in the mountaintop hamlet of Cragsmoor. Lesikin received art training at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University (MFA); School of Art, Syracuse University (BFA); and at the Art Students League (Woodstock, NY). She is recipient of several awards including a Woodstock Artists Association Grant and NYS Arts Alive Grant. Her work is in numerous private and corporate collections, including the former Museum of Modern Art Loan Collection, French & Co. Gallery, NY, and Galleria Juana Mordo, Madrid, Spain. Her work is presently represented by Stray Cat Gallery, Bethel, New York. Her studio is always open to visitors. From the Artist: "Cloth has traditionally been paintings’ backdrop or decorative element. I instead bring the cloth to the foreground. In Bodyscapes, the series from which the pumpkin seed packet design grew, landscape is represented by the hills and valleys of the cloth. In each painting, the cloth is draped over a person. So each artwork becomes a dual experience: an exploration of hills and valleys of landscape (of my native landscape—New York’s Hudson River Valley) and of crevices and curves of human form." Medium: oil on linen
