Some Grandular Kelp for the Pumpkin Plants
This morning I gave both plants some granular kelp (0-0-1.5). Kelp is a great source of hormones, potassium and micro nutrients. Application rate was fairly small. About 1/2 pound for the 1985 plant and 1/4 pound for the 282 plant. I have some kelp mixed in with my myco that I put down at each leaf node as I bury the vines, but vine growth is pretty minimal these days as most of the vines are terminated and majority of the kelp application was done in the areas of the earliest buried vines.
