If a gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs and your pumpkin will weigh 4.5 lbs when mature how much water should you sprinkle over those seeds?

From the time of planting, how many days will it be before a pumpkin is fully grown and then rots?

Probably 1 gallon per square ft per week if the week has been unseasonably dry. I'm in NJ, AKA the Garden State. The summers and early autumns are usually rainy, with a hard rain every three to four days on average.

I'm expecting to plant within the next two weeks. The pumpkins should be fully grown by September/early October and ready for harvesting. I harvested two smaller pumpkins last year and I've still got em. Haven't rotted or anything.

Exactly how strong do cannabis plants smell when they're flowering?

Do you prefer jelly or syrup?

Depends on the strain. Some also smell like other plants instead of weed. Safe to say: A lot, grow inside with good air filtration.

That seems early, what are the night time temperatures?

Around here squash is not a good idea until about June/July when the night time temps stay above 60 or so.  Lots of cool rain is also not great because it leads to fungus.

Night time temps have been in the high 40s, but the highs are approaching 70s. They'll be close to 50s by the time I plant. We're in planting zone 7a, and usually by this time in two weeks the grass is growing strong and I practically can't keep up with mowing.

What other useful food could you have grown in the huge amount of space that the pumpkins will take up?
