How long do my pumpkins have?

I planted my pumpkins in late April-I live in Long Beach, California. All of my vines produced pumpkins and now I need to cut them off the vines. How long do I have until the pumpkins go bad? Will I make it to Halloween?? What is the best area to keep them fresh? Sorry to ask but I am a first time pumpkin grower :lol:

Your welcome!

You'd be surprised just how long pumpkins and other winter-squash will keep given the proper storage method.
