Some Compost Tea for the Giant Pumpkin Plant

This evening I gave the pumpkin plant some compost tea that had a handful of alfalfa pellets, 1/8 cup of molasses, 1/8 cup seaweed, pinch of blood meal, 1/8 cup humic acid, 1 teaspoon of fish & seaweed, one dried leaf and just a pinch of compost.  I took that 4 gallons of compost tea that has been aerated for 24 hours and put it on all of the leaves and then poured some around the stump of the plant.  This is definitely a little stronger brew then my normal compost tea.  Cooler weather is coming to Colorado on Wednesday so I figured I'd give the plant one last little push before the weather rolls in.
