Growth has been pretty erratic lately. Weather is a factor in that but it is also due to the challenge of measuring a pumpkin that is more than 13 feet around in circumference. Getting the tape on the proper line and not having it slip around is always a difficulty and with time the line changes as new bumps and bulges form. As long as you see growth on the measuring tape it is all good.
Condolences go out to Pete today. His patch got hit by hail. Sounds like it was a pretty good storm but maybe not a devestating storm. Always hate to see that when it happens to a grower and especially one that I know has been working hard this year.
Gave the plants about 1/2 cup of seaweed today. Now that we are getting into the last month of growing I'll start giving the plants a touch of potassium to help keep the pounds going. I use a liquid seaweed that is 0-0-5 and has some humic acid in it.
