Question: why my pumpkin plants produce flowers but i never get pumpkins

Answer: You are probably doing everything right; here's what I suspect the problem is: Pumpkins produce a whole bunch of male flowers before they produce even one female flower. This helps ensure a good ratio for pollination. Within a week or so I expect you will be seeing little bitty pumpkins. Enjoy those pumpkins!
