Protect ripening pumpkins from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut pumpkins carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

I'm going back to these guys. Got 2 pumpkins in '12 (low yield is my issue with light/soil) - an 18lb & a 32 lb. I ate a LOT of pumpkin waffles. And the seeds are really good too.
