This is my first time growing pumpkins, actually by accident. Usually discard old pumpkins in manure pile and they just started growing like wildfire, anyway on some of them the leaves are starting to turn yellow/white, we have been watering them or the rain has done a god job also. What is causing the leaves to turn color?
The pumpkins look alright.
Thanks for your help.

Sounds like powdery mildew , a fungus caused by to much water / wet , not much you can do... , If you have stems that are still green and hard , you could try cutting and let them dry hopfully and finish turning orange . Or you could chance letting thing go and see if they make it , it all hangs on how much they are along or still green / young...
Had a bad year myself , I grow the big stuff for wholesale market , (100- 200 lb'ers) much to wet and loss alot ..
Good Luck
