How do you know when to harvest a pumpkin? Weeks of growing energy in a delicious nugget, how do you know when it's at it's prime? This tip was taught to me by the man that inspired me to be self sustainable in terms of the food we grow some 4.5 years ago. He told me to pick pumpkins when the closest leaf to the fruit dies. Someone else told me to pick them when the whole vine dies, but I have had great success with allowing the closest leaf to die. So there you go, happy pumpkin growing!
