I'm getting plenty of flowers, and about half of them produce a tiny little pumpkin.
However, after only a couple of days, the pumpkins begin to turn black and shrivel up.
It is 104-degrees during the day with medium humidity.
I have been providing water.
Although my sample size may be a tad small, it seems that those in the shade are slightly more likely to survive.
Should I cover the young pumpkins to give them a chance?
I have 8 larger pumpkins in the patch, but I haven't had any new ones take hold a while.
