Aphids infestation on pumpkin plants. Two nights ago, sprayed with neem oil 0.9% solution (Bonide RTU Fungicide, Miticide, Insecticide).
Photo shows my 5-year-old son with his giant pumpkin plants from Irvine Park RR Pumpkin Forum on 5/2018: back one is seedling labeled 1028 Gienger '09 (1110 Wallace x 1347 Wallace) and the front right one is from a seed we started labeled 1877 Kline 16 (F. 2059 Daletas, M. sib.).

We had prepared our pumpkin patch with buckwheat cover crop earlier this year. Plus we loosened the clay rocky soil a few times last winter and this spring. Applied 5-5-5 organic fertilizer a couple months ago. The giant pumpkin plants got WOW starter fertilizer packs when we planted them in the ground around mid-June
