Dap unknown...its going well at one watering a day with the dripworks small crops driptape kit. I pushed it to 1 hr 15 min the pumpkin showed a small crack on the stem. So dialed back to 45 minutes. Also moved it to the morning so I don't have another year of rotting. My soil holds water very well.

July 18th. It's come along nicely in two weeks. 1. Had some stump foam so i stopped watering back half of plant and that's helps a ton. No foam. 2. Small crack on stem from too much watering. Sulphur. Next morning crack was not any bigger and drier...last year the rotting stem started this way so less watering.
