This spring I had planted well ove 100 plants of several varieties of pumpkings and only a few fruit have been produced. From the start, the plants did very well and even as they matured they were huge and healthy looking. Any idea what went wrong ? I relied on nature for polination and applied composted manure as fertilizer...

You have not said where you are located or type of pumpkins you planted , see my posts in the Implement Alley.

Mine also did terrible, but I blame it on the ongoing drought. They set a couple of pumpkins that turned orange in July. Since then, nothing.
