Green Thumb Guide

Plant in enriched, garden soil early spring. Handle fragile vines with care so as to not damage them. Harvest pumpkins when they turn a rich orange or when a light frost kills the vine. Use shears to cut fruit from vine, leaving 2"-3" of stem. To harden skin, allow pumpkin to cure in the sun for a week, then store in a cool, dry place.
