pumpkin starts

About two weeks ago I took my daughter to a kid's gardening program at the library. They gave her pumpkin seeds to germinate in a damp paper towel rolled up. We forgot to check the seeds for too long; when she unrolled the towel today every single seed was sprouting roots and leaves!
She planted them all in SIPs
and now they are happy outside in the coldframe until I can clear another garden spot for pumpkins to grow.
