Pumpkin Growth Pattern

The 2145 pumpkin has continued to slow down.  The morning lows have consistently been in the 40s the last two weeks.  Day time highs have been nice in the mid-80s, but with those low temperatures it takes a long time for the patch to get warm enough that the pumpkin grows.   There probably isn't more than 12 hours of growing a day right now.  It would be interesting to see what the daily gains would be if the plant were kept above 70 degrees each night.  I'd bet pumpkin growth would double.

Sprayed on the leaves some some TKO today to give the plant a little boost and to help fight the powdery mildew that has started to come on lately.
