Hello all! I have a sister patch actually and it’s my first time! I am excited to say I happily harvested pumpkins, corn, and beans from my circle. However, it is getting old out and it’s been rainy… my weather looks like it will be high to low 30’s, mid forties for a bit, then possibly up to feel about 55 for a bit :barefoot:

So I was wondering if they should all come home once the soil dries up. My sister patch was a miracle worker. It was not leveled too well so it accumulates a lot of water when it rains, but still produced yummy food ;)

Any advice would be most appreciated. One of my baby bear pumpkins is my default btw

If your pumpkins can be moved, move them indoors, or at least under a porch roof or other overhang where they will be out of the direct frost and rain. Pumpkins can handle some cold and wet, but they will diminish quicker than if they are kept dry.

Yes, do harvest the rest of your pumpkins. They won't last sitting in mud and puddles.
