Pumpkin Seeds

I saved pumpkin seeds for the first time and I stored them wrong. I forgot to punch holes in the in the container and now they are growing. They have opened and are growing together root wise. It is the end of November.  Can I still save them?

Once the seeds have sprouted, they have to grow. And it is doubtful that they can survive the winter as seedlings indoors.

That being said, it is likely not the lack of holes that caused them to sprout, but that you are storing them in a place that is too warm. The best place to store seeds is in your crisper drawer in your fridge. This will keep them cool enough to prevent germination but not so cool that the seeds die.
