Fred, Your main problem is that you obviously live in hell and you can't grow pumpkins there. Consider switching to Hot peppers.
: I live in a climate where the humidity rarely exceeds 30%, 98 to 110 temperatures from mid July to date, and a long growing season. My question is - My vine is deteriorating from the stem to the outer regions and the pumpkin is no where near maturity. What would cause this? Last year I grew my first pumpkin. It reached 250lbs and the same thing happened. Could it be seed? Is there seed for my climate???
