    will pumpkins growing in my vege garden kill my other plants?

    I planted  a garden in an old composting pile. The pumpkins had been thrown there last fall. I actually thought the first two small leaves were Boston lettuce!!  They even tasted like it! Well, now I have an abundance of pumpkin plants that seem to have taken over my Boston lettuce section of my garden. I am a novice gardener, and am not quite sure what certain plants look like when in beginning stages! Help!

    Absolutely - (1) If those pumkin leaves shade the others out or (2) If a big pumpkin rolls over the others and squashes them. ;-)
