I read this in the PLANTINGI read this in the PLANTING section above: "You can also grow pumpkins in big 5 to 10 gallon buckets! Or, try miniature varieties." - My location is NJ (zip 08830). I believe I would have enough space to plant pumpkins inground in my backyard garden, but would like to try the buckets for this year. Should I start the seeds in the buckets indoors OR in peat pots instead, THEN transplant into a bucket and take it outdoorS? Also, should I drill holes at the bottoms of the buckets to allow proper drainage (like a pot)? Thank you!
