Vegetables such as pompion
(squash), spinach, onions, and parsley might have been harvested from English gardens.

(the word is used by Shakespeare in his Merry Wives of Windsor) and the American colonists converted this to pumpkin.
In March and April, we set Potatoes, Pompions
, Cucumbers, Melons, Kidney-beans, etc.
