So, we went to an environmental fair in May, and my son got to plant a pumpkin seed and take it home. We transferred it to our veggie garden. It sprouted into a lovely green thing and started producing flowers by the end of June (we live in southern NH). We're now in early August, and it's only still producing male flowers. I've scrutinized it quite closely for female flowers; there are/have been none. We've had a rainy season, and I know that can cause female flowers to postpone/die before opening, but this seems extreme! We also had one bad run-in with a groundhog who removed all the leaves (they've since grown back). So, 20+ male flowers later with no females in sight, can we chalk it up to weather? Animal pests? Or that this pumpkin seed's origin is a question mark? Anyway to "force" female flowers? Thanks for the help! Btw, we have two other cucumber family plants, and they are producing female flowers/fruit. They haven't been the hardiest this season, but the pumpkin plant is definitely the odd "male" out.
