We took the boys to the farm to pick pumpkins in mid September.
We picked at least 8 or 9 and have at least half a dozen more still ripening.
They were thrilled. Our oldest insisted on cutting the pumpkin from the vine himself. Our middle son doesn't really enjoy being at the farm, but he enjoyed seeing the pumpkins. Our youngest son adores the farm and asks us everyday if we can go there. He always has fun out there, so picking pumpkins was right up his alley.
They grew well! The vines are almost as tall as our youngest.
