Pumpkin Vine Burying, Myco & Compost Tea

Early this morning I buried the vines on my pumpkin plant; put down some myco and humic acid at each leaf node; and then buried the vines to encourage roots to grow at each leaf node and also to anchor the plan in the wind.   I also gave each plant about 1 1/2 gallons of compost tea with 1 1/2 tablespoons of liquid seaweed in it. 

It is possibly going to be record breaking temperatures today in Denver.  Not an ideal way to introduce the pumpkin plants to the sun for the first time (they've been in the hoop house for a month).  I'll be misting the plants a lot today to keep them cooler and keep the humidity high.  Young leaves don't do well in the hot sun.
