Phoenix enjoyed (suffered) its first 100 degree day today (only 96 in the garden). May represents the last month we can pretend we have pumpkin growing weather (average temp 86). The average temperature will be 95 during May and 104 in June. I really hated taking some of the shade off my plants, but I guess we overshot what we needed. I have great looking leaves, but I was getting terrible growth (3-5 pounds per day) on all the plants. Since I took the extra shade off, 10 days ago, I have been adding 10-12 pounds per day. Thanks to Matt Debacco and John Taberna for taking the time to help.
