pumpkins

Anonymous added on July 11, 2015 | Answered

I have some pumpkins that are getting large and I wondered if I should put them on something so they won't rot. Also, can I turn them so they won't be flat on one side. Do pumpkins require a lot of water?

    Yes, you can slide the pumpkin onto a board or something similar if desired, though it's not required. You can also turn the pumpkin though again, it's okay to leave it. Make sure your pumpkin plants get 2-4 inches of water a week. Supplement with the hose if you are not getting this much rainfall.
