Patch at the new house is 56ft x 35ft so I'm going to grow two plants giving them just under 1000 sq ft each. I will be getting the hoop houses up this weekend to start warming the ground up.

Plant is finally growing but still behind about 2 weeks from last year. Have been really busy with work so the leaves have suffered from neglect.

Found this hole on the main vine yesterday. I dusted with sulfur and had a fan on it all night. It is still hard and none of it is soft. Should I turn the secondary before it and make that my new main vine or should it be ok if I keep it dry and dusted

Found this crack today on the one I wanted as my keeper on the main. I sulfured the crack and wrapped it with rubber wire used for tying plants to stakes to keep the crack from opening more. If I keep it dry would the pumpkin be fine or should I use a different one on a secondary.

I need advice on which kin you guys would keep and which one to cull. The stump started under the clear plastic canopy running to the blue tarp canopy. Under the blue canopy is option A. Which is the larger kin that is on DAP 21. This kin is growing off of a tiny secondary vine and the stem is small and is only gaining 10-12lbs a day and the blossom end is starting to sink in. The other kin (option B) is towards the bottom of the picture at the end of a thick secondary which is on DAP 11 the shape is elongated more like a football but the stem is already thicker than the bigger kin's stem. Which kin would you guys keep and which one to cut.

this crack is only about a 1/4" deep. Will the kin be fine or will it be the end of the season
