Q.Fiirst time pumpkin grower – one maybe 10lb round, one same wt but like a marrow , one 3lb round, all green

Zone Alrewas, England, UK | Linus73 added on August 19, 2018 | Answered

Great Granddaughter gave me pumpkin seeds. I’ve managed to grow three greem pumpkins? Will they yellow for Halloween? Why has one pumpkin grown like a marrow? Are they all edible? I don’t want the large pumpkin any bigger. If I cut it off will it stay fresh until halloween?

I have one more question about my lawn if you can help. I could not water it in the hot weather due to water restrictions. I’ve raked off 3 bucket fulls of dead dry brown grass. What should I do now to treat it before feeding. Thanks for any help you can give me.

They should yellow by halloween. They are edible and the one like marrow is a different type than your others. If you cut it off now it will rot in a few weeks. For your grass there is nothing you can do to have it grow back before winter. You will have to wait till spring. Also, don't fertilize it now, because it is dead and you will waste time and fertilizer.
