Pumpkins ready for pickin'
At what stage do you pick pumpkins. I have four big japs that look ready. I have been told two things, 1. wait till the stem attatching the pumpkin to the plant is withered and I also read in gardening australia that when the vine start to look mildewy its time to pick. I don;t want to do it too early becasue I think? it stops them keeping as well? Anybody know.
