When to water?  Pumpkins areWhen to water?  Pumpkins are ALWAYS thirsty. They are 80 to 90% water. The question is: How much? Just turn off the water when puddles appear and wait until the soil is just dry on the top before watering again. By mid-August the plants are pulling in a huge amount of water. If it’s a dry season, give each plant 15 to 20 gallons of water twice a week. Water in the evening, and do not water the leaves; water at the base of the plant to avoid disease.
