Pic shows what I think is guttation from the pumpkin surface, mostly at the stump end. It's been going on all week. I'm guessing the sap in the plant is under pressure, but has nowhere to go, so it's being forced out of the pores. Normally this would be staying in the fruit and making it grow and swell, but cold temps means slow growth - the pumpkin just can't grow fast enough to accommodate all the juice that's flowing into it.
