    Hi Tim-
    When it comes to when to expect veggies to flower/produce, much depends on when the seeds were planted and the seed quality. Pumpkins require cross pollination from male and female plants and It is not unusual for pumpkins to flower and begin to grow as late as August in New England. Once the pumpkins appear they should grow fast in the hot August sun. Let me know how you make out!
