Q.How to extend life of pumpkin that is beginning to get over ripe
Hi. I’ve grown some pumpkins. One free very big big and is hollow sounding orange and stump was very hard. But today I feel that the stump isn’t as hard as it was. I was hoping to have the pumpkin for Halloween. Is there any way to preserve it till then . Others were green but now turning orange and smaller than first one. Thank you

Yes! But you must pick them when fully ripe. If properly stored, you can keep them for more than 3 months.
