I on the other hand am growing pumpkins for the first time. It's call Black Futsu, an heirloom variety. I didn't put the seeds (2) in the ground until July 27th here. They took off right away in the raised bed. (Although the female flowers were growing ahead of the males) Maybe June would have been better but last year we didn't have our first frost until December I think....but it was in the forties by mid November. Hoping I will make it!! My vines are starting to grow back now....does that mean the pumpkins are reaching harvest time? hmmmm.
Thank you for all the info.
I've got two vines, with a total of nine pumpkins. So I'll guess nine. lol
