Cold Weather Means Slow Growth
The cold weather of this week is slowing the pumpkin down a lot. Just one inch of growth over the last three days. Not much you can do at this point other than covering the pumpkin with blankets at night and wait for a warm sun to come back out. The forecast isn't looking bad but not great over the next 10 days in Denver. I find that this pumpkin doesn't typically grow much until it gets over 75 degrees for the daytime high. It doesn't look like it will get much warmer than that over the next ten days. Fall is in the air. Right now I am down to 12 inches from reaching my goal with exactly 3 weeks of growing left.
