I have tried to grow pumpkins and other fruiting ground vines like cantaloupe, watermelon, and honeydew here in the past, but have not met with much success. at least one problem, perhaps two, that I've had to deal with include the common powdery mold, and possibly caterpillars. I treated for both, but didn't have a lot of results in the end. Got a fruit set on the pumpkins or two, but they never grew large. I'd gather that I'm probably not growing the pumpkins under the right conditions-i.e. poor soil, not enough plant fertilizing, weather ect.
I think perhaps that we have cool dry winters and hot rainy summers.
for now, I just carve them.
