What should you put under the pumpkin to stop it rotting on the bare ground

I generally just place an old piece of wood (1" thick x 4" wide any length I have), or maybe an old small crate to lift it off the ground: it's really the soil getting onto the pumpkin that causes the decay.

I’ve been putting old seedling pots under them. Good way to reuse the plastic.
