HOW TO GROW PUMPKIN

Direct sow after last frost or soil 70˚F, seeds will rot in cool wet soil, 5-6 seeds to a hill. Sow pumpkins to mature in September for fall market. Can transplant end of last frost with row cover. Pinch new blossoms midsummer to encourage larger set fruit size. Hard frost damaged fruit will not store well. Harvest before frost or after 1–2 nights of light frost. Clip stems close to vine.
