|Hmm it's a close one...But not impossible though. There are lots of pumpkins to choose from with the smaller ones needing less time to mature.
To get a head start on your growing season, you can sow indoors a few weeks before your last frost date and - if enough space is available and money not too tight - you can erect some sort of hoop house to extend it even more.
I advice you to give it a try Not every season is the same though and in the end you loose more by not trying than failing
