Accordingly, how long can you save pumpkin seeds?
Place the sheet in a cool, dry place. For the first couple of days, stir them often and turn them over, so they dry on each side. Continue to allow them to dry for three to four weeks. If you see any mold, discard the ones that are moldy.
Beside above, when should pumpkin seeds be planted? Sow traditional field pumpkins or jack o'lanterns into garden soil from May 15 to June 15. For an earlier harvest or perhaps a slightly larger pumpkin, you can start seeds indoors up to two weeks before these dates. Miniature pumpkins don't need as long a growing season to reach their full potential.
Also to know is, how do you harvest pumpkin seeds?
Use a sharp, sturdy knife to cut around the top of the pumpkin, then carefully remove the “lid.” Use a large metal spoon to scrape out the seeds and stringy pulp, then put the seeds and pulp in a large bowl of water.
Can I plant pumpkin seeds from a store bought pumpkin?
You can try to plant seeds that came from a pumpkin you bought at the store and carved or ate, but there's no telling whether they'll grow well in your area. Your best bet is to pick out a fresh packet of seeds to start your pumpkin patch.
