Answer

Pumpkin growing requires a lot of sun and a lot of space.   If you Google pumpkin growing, you will receive descriptive and useful information.  Additionally, your local county cooperative extension office will have information for you related to your weather and growing zone.

When your pumpkins are growing, do remember that while bean leaf beetles can do major damage to the leaves on bean plants, research has shown that pumpkin plants can sacrifice an amazing 80 percent of their leaves without any loss in yields, should you see this damage.
