    Hi all,

    I'm going to try vertical growing a few things this year for the first time. One of my items which I want to grow vertically (some sort of homemade sturdy trellis) is the Early Sweet Sugar Pie Pumpkin from Burpee. Neither the package nor their web site indicates if this pumpkin is a climbing/vining variety, or if it is a bush variety. I thought they ALL would climb, until I read someone's blog saying they didn't realize they'd bought the wrong kind and that their bush variety pumpkin was a poor climber. :( Eek! Do I have a climber?
