YUMMY NUTTY PUMPKIN LEAVES


Pumpkins are a good source of nutrients and the pumpkin leaves are always overlooked yet they are high in essential vitamins such as A & C. Vitamin A promotes healthy skin, hair and improves eyesight. Vitamin C aids in healing wounds , scar tissue formation, maintaining healthy bones, skin and teeth. Even better when you grow your own free from pesticides. Pumpkins take an average of 90 to 120 days to mature and ripen, during that period nature generously provides the same nutrients through the leaves for humans to enjoy
