The growth continues...72 hours later!
Good evening, Pumpkinistas!
The relatively warm and sunny days have provided near ideal growing conditions. Here's the pumpkin, 72 hours later. I've trimmed a few leaves that looked like they were becoming covered in powdery mildew, but nothing too severe. In addition, I've been fertilizing at 1/2 strength, once every 3-5 days. Watering continues on a daily basis, 30 minutes at 6:00 a.m., through the soaker hose.
