Pumpkin

I have managed to grow a decent size pumpkin from seeds saved last year from  shop bought one ,so I don't know what type it is or anything about it other than now it's about the size if a football,dark green in colour turning yellow,   I have rested it on a piece of wood as it's still attached to it's stem and covered it with fleece. My question is,  when should I lift it and should I let it 'rest' awhile till we eat it ?

    We cut ours, with a long length of stem, last weekend.  They are now sitting on flowerpots in the greenhouse ripening up.  We save them til end of October ????

  • Thanks for that. It did seem a good idea but I wasn't sure . I too will keep mine for a couple more weeks at least...like your pictures!
