A Little Fertilizer & a Lot of Water
This evening I gave the pumpkin plants some foliar magnesium and humic acid and today I gave the plants a lot of water for the 2nd day in a row. Not quite as hot in Denver today (96 degrees) as yesterday (101 degrees) but more windy. That makes it the third day in a row with high temperatures. Tomorrow we will get a little break from the heat and then we will be back into it again. I have a female that on the 1789 Wallace that will probably open on Thursday at about 11 feet. It is the only female that has showed up on that plant so I need to make this one count. It is a little early for pollination, especially since I expect it to be a hot summer which will ripen the fruit faster, but I don't have any choice. I'm just going to hope for another female to show up over the next 10 days.
