DAP 7

I removed my shade cloth from over the pumpkin. There is now plenty of natural shade coming from the leaf at that node. A sheet of cement board was placed over the soil for the pumpkin to set (if it takes). If not, I will shimmy it on down to the pumpkin at the 20'+ spot on the main. No ferts placed for over a week now. I did spray a light folliar fungicide and insecticide 6-12-18.

Gonna stay light on the Nitrogen for a bit longer BUT i'm thinking about starting to ease into a heavy Phosphate and Potassium Fert soon.
