I was at the state farm show yesterday with the family. I was looking at the many competition items on display such as pumpkins, gourds, etc. And I was wondering how they kept those pumpkins looking so good till this time. Was it simple cold storage, or were they planted late season (greenhouse??) in attempts to having fresh looking stuff at this time of the year? I would like to enter some garden stuff next year, but looking for any tips, tricks or suggestions.
