Tent City in the Pumpkin Patch: Brrrrr

For the 2nd year in a row I'm dealing with freezing temperatures in June.  The 2051 plant, which my son is now going to take over, is about 4-5 days past due from being removed from the hoop house, but with three days of freezing temperatures we couldn't remove it, so the side vines are smashed against the sides and a hole for the main fine was cut and it is about 3-4 feet outside of the hoop house.  Self pollinated a female on it yesterday.

Created a tent city to keep the plants in the outdoors from freezing.  The greenhouse got two propane  heaters.  Also, foliar seaweeded the plant because I read once that seaweed can help reduce frosting a little.
