Are any of you having trouble keeping your pumpkin patches alive? This is my third year planting a patch and i have never had trouble growing them but this year almost all are withered away. In Tennessee we plant them the first week in June and by Halloween they are ready. This year started off normal but the last month they have not progressed at all and are drying up. I have started watering them, something i have never had to do, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any ideas?
