No Pumkins yet

So, it's only the 2nd time I grown pumpkins. If I have no pumkins yet, am I out of luck this year? I only had one female flower and it got eaten...dang rabbits. Pet out.

When's your average last frost? Bet it is getting down to the wire.
When did you plant?

Tahlequah, OK

Hey George. I think I planted too late, my average first frost is sometime in September. I guess I'll be buying my Halloween Pumpkin this year! Pet out.

My guess is, in your area, you should plant regular Jack O'latern type pumpkins around June 15. You might check with your country extension agent.

Boy, I don't know what to say I am in WI zone 4b and have many pumpkins, many of them harvested. How many plants do you have? Maybe your soil needs a bit of help. Are the plants big and healthy with long vines just no flowers? Or are your plants just not taking off for you?
