I'm glad I was able to attend the education sessions in Wilkes-Barre. The information was certainly timely. One idea that Beni Meier mentioned was to leave the tap roots intact near the pumpkin. I spent part of the morning carefully lifting the vines near the fertile pumpkins to give the plant room to grow and force the root to reach for the soil. Lightly placed dirt around the exposed root to offer it some protection. I think it makes sense to have the tap root intact right at the pumpkin to feed nutrients over a short path.
