Compost Tea for the Pumpkin Plants

I gave each pumpkin plants about 1 1/2 gallons of compost tea this evening with some molasses and seaweed in with the compost tea.  The plants are going to like that.

We are in the vine burying phase of growing right now.  Not my favorite time of the year, but burying vines to get more roots is one of the most important things you can do during the growing season to grow a big pumpkin.  By the end of July the patch should be almost full of vines and the pumpkin will be growing fast enough that the pumpkin vine growth will slow way down.
