You can start pumpkin seeds indoors if you want to get a jump on the season, but you can also plant them in the ground once the soil is warm, say about two weeks after the last average frost date. A rule of thumb for indoor starting is only about two weeks before your last average frost date; the reason for this is that the seedlings get big very fast and are difficult to transplant. Plant them out about the same time as you start the seeds in the ground.
