Main Vines are Getting Ready To Run

This time of year can be kind of boring in regards to pumpkin growing. Thad Starr said it well in an email last week when he said, "I hate this time of the year. You wait and anticipate it all winter, finally get to start your seeds, then schreeeech! Wait and wait for the little bastards to grow. They are so slow to start!" The 1566 contines to do fairly well. The 1350 had very little growth for about a week so I planted a back plant next to it and it got the message. In the last two days it grew two new leaves and there are signs of life in the plant again.

The warm weather is really starting to help the growth too. I've been giving the plants a little extra water as well to help them along.
