Growing Pumpkins for Year-Round Supply:

Select the Right Pumpkin Variety: Choose a pumpkin variety that suits your taste preferences and growing conditions. Some varieties are well-suited for long storage.

Prepare the Soil: Pumpkins prefer well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Work the soil to a depth of about 12 inches and amend it with compost or well-rotted manure.

Planting: Plant pumpkin seeds directly in the garden or start them indoors and transplant seedlings. Space the plants according to the specific requirements of the chosen variety.

Sunlight: Pumpkins thrive in full sun. Ensure that the plants receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. Water at the base of the plants to prevent diseases, and avoid overhead watering.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the pumpkin plants to conserve soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
