I take all my garden refuse and pile it in a corner of my garden. This year it included a couple of pumpkins. I stirred everything up tilled it under and all of a sudden I have 10 volunteer plants. Thought what the heck, made a row and five are doing fine.

If I remember right it's early for them right? Think I will get anything out of them?

Yep, early....a farmer near my house grows them every year, I saw he prepped his rows about a week ago. Not to say they wont do good though.

Not a pumpkin grower, but I've always heard for a October harvest planting should be late June/early July.

Depends on the pumpkins.

For giant pumpkins, the earlier the better
