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.

Thank you.

what Omie said. When I had the farm we had a room in the NW corner of the basement that had a sealed door and a couple of other features to help with ventilation and such that served as our root cellar.....it was way better than any refrigerator or other method of storage for fresh foods than I've ever tried anywhere else.
