1513 Sherwood at 26 days since pollination. OTT: 109.25 = 36 lbs (C: 42.5 B: 30.25 S: 33.75) Well, it's official. It's growing by only about 3.5 lbs a day. I'm stumped. We had a great start; and we've certainly proven that we can grow leaves - but the fruit is just growing much slower than anticipated. It's the same with all three plants. I know I have great seeds. I've had fantastic weather since January. Leaves are great, if you're growing lettuce (and Arizona does that very well during this time of year). My soil reports show I've got a bunch of stuff in the soil However, I'm concerned that I'm not getting it out and into the fruit. How can I help my pumpkins along for the next 50 days (weigh-off May 30)?
