what to do with pumpkins

janeth_50(z6MO)August 15, 2010

Last fall I put a small white pumpkin in the compost pile.

It sprouted and I have several cute white pumpkins.

The vine has died. How do I keep the pumpkins good until fall?

I am assuming the compost pile stays damp so I would remove them. Leave a handle on the top, if you break off the vine completely, the pumpkin will rot much faster.

Place them in place that stays around mid 80's of a day and not below 60 at night. That means out of the direct sun. I wouldn't place them on direct concrete either.

Good luck.
