Q.Are my pumpkin seeds dead?
I always plant my pumpkin & gourd at the end of April & they are usually sprouting after two weeks give or take. This year did the same thing & they haven’t sprouted yet. We weren’t expecting it to drop to 32°F one night. Could that have killed the seeds in the soil? I would like to know, instead of playing the waiting game, so if they did get killed off from that one night, (and a few nights of being in the 30s), I can get more seeds and still have a pumpkin patch this year.

I would definitely replant right away. A few nights of freezing temps definitely could have killed your seeds. Your soil should be in the 60 degree temperature range when you plant, so new seeds are probably in order.
