After all danger of frost is past plant pumpkin seeds about 1 / 2 to 1 inch deep in groups of 3-5 plants. These vegetables are not fond of cool soil so don't plant too early in Central Texas. May to early June is about ideal and n o later than late June. Many types can take over 100 days to mature fruit.
Our gardening blogger, Doreen, actually lived in Texas for many years; she now lives in the Midwest but her blog tends to be relevant for North America and does not get too specific about one state or another. If you ever have questions for her, I'm sure she'd be happy to answer and she has that Texas perspective. Her blog is here: http://www.almanac.com/gardening/blog
