On Friday I gave the plant 1/2 cup of Happy Frog 5-8-4. This is the first descent dose of fertilizer it has had in about two weeks while I have been waiting for the fruit to set.
The sides and main continue to grow although a little bit more slowly now. Two days of 95+ degree temperatures and growing pumpkins have taken some of the energy away. The temps will cool off only slightly this week so we will keep misting as much as we can and adding a little extra water when necessary.
