Keeping Pumpkins





What is the best way of storing pumpkins, under ordinary farm

conditions, in a climate such as we have here in northern California? I

have no facilities for cold storage.



All you have to do in this climate to keep pumpkins is to keep them out

of reach of the stock. They do not need storage of any kind, but will

keep in good condition during the late autumn and winter months in any

open-air place where they may be convenient for feeding purposes. In

parts of California where there is hard ground freezing, protection must

be given by covering with boards or straw or any other material

available. We have no need for root cellars or cold storage, for our

winter temperatures are neither high nor low enough to hurt them.
