Found out I had some mis-measurements on the 1161 and it is actually growing pretty good the last few days. The stump is a mess, but the pumpkin is growing fine. I cleaned up the stump again today. The rot has gone in about 1/3 inch and doesn't seem to be improving much. If anyone has any tips on how to clear it up I'm all ears.
I should have an announcement on the 1236 Harp pumpkin this Sunday. Stay tuned!
Gave both of the plants some secret sauce tonight. It may be a bit late in the season for it but I figure it can't hurt.
