Updates from the Garden
The heat of the last two days has slowed the pumpkin down slightly. My good father has been misting the plant 3-4 times a day and I'm sure it has helped but there is not much you can do when it is 99 degrees. Right now I'm about 4 inches off of pace. Not a big deal but I don't want to lose to much more ground or it will be impossible to make it up. The next three days have forecasts in the high 90s so it will be really important to get the water and the fertilization just right. Right now I'm giving the plant around 2.5 - 3 inches of water per week.
