Based pumpkin grower.
Pumpkin are a low maintenance crop that stores really well.
The reasons pumpkin soup is a winter dish is because that's when you actually ate the pumpkin.

So two thing I learned about bumpkins
A. they plant really really well among other plants, just use them as a ground cover under beans or corn or whatever- they have broad leaves so they don't get upset by things growing around/over them.
B. remember to keep the stem on them when you harvest them, it protects them from rot- like an umbilical cord
