Pumpkins can be started indoors a week or so before the last expected frost, and would then be planted outdoors about two weeks after the last frost. Alternatively, after all danger of frost, they can be planted directly in the ground once the soil has warmed to about 70 degrees. The seeds will not germinate if the soil is cold.
