We understand your challenge but the soil and air needs to be warm for growth to begin. Plant your pumpkin seeds after the danger of frost has passed in early spring and the soil is thoroughly warm. You'll need about three to four months of warm growing days with daytime temperatures above 75 degrees. One idea: You can plant your seeds at the end of the school year (May/June) and then harvest pumpkins at the beginning of the next school year.
