Little bit of green when harvesting OK?
Having to harvest many pumpkins early due to stress of vines from heat and bugs as I have posted earlier. Does any one know if it is OK to harvest when just a tiny bit of green is still on pumpkin? If this was mid Oct. I would not bother asking, but trying to cure and save these now for Oct. and beyond. If they are too green then I should leave them but I have borers randomly boring right into pumpkins so I am wanting to get them out of the patch as soon as possible. Have many that look like this. Should I give them a bit longer or should they be OK to harvest?
