Orange pumpkins....too early?
So, it has been very hot and dry here in WI as with most of the country. I have been diligent in keeping the pumpkins with enough moisture but cannot do much about the heat. I have many pumpkins just starting to form as I type, but also have many @ a harvestable size that have turned fully orange already. I was able to plant about 2Ã¯Â¿Â½ weeks earlier this season compared to last due to the mild winter. I thought this was great as last fall many of my pumpkins were still green @ harvest time. Now I am worried so many are fully/turning orange here in early August. What do you think?
