Hello all you pumpkin people! I've planted a Jack-be-little pumpkin for my 5-year-old in a pot on our deck - it's growing like mad, flowering, with what appears to be tiny pumpkins at the base of the flowers. The problem is that the pumpkins soon shrivel up when the flowers fade. What am I doing wrong?!?!? Thanks for any advise y'all can offer! Nancy

Lack of polination is your problem. You could try to pollinate some blossoms yourself by brushing a male flower on some of the female flowers.
