Pumpkin Plant

My pumpkins are now colored orange and the leaves are dying (brown). Do I still have to water them? Do I remove the fruits now? How do I store them to preserve them for later use?

I have sweet potato plant. It has lots of leaves sprawling on the ground. Do you know if there maybe some fruits I can harvest? I have also regular potatoes. Will they survive the winter?

You can store potatoes in the ground as long as the ground does not freeze solid. Otherwise, you should dig them up and store them. This article will help with that:
