Both of the 143's have bent or cracked vines. I will not be watering onto the vines so maybe its ok.

I was thinking about this and my goals in general. I think my goal is getting narrowed down to the 150 sq ft challenge. And since I am already having main vine issues, what about setting on a secondary.

Everything blossom down. Last year my 795.5 'Peggy' was not an exceedingly beautiful pumpkin. But she was kinda smooth skinned and blossom down. People like the blossom-down look. Maybe a perfect pumpkin is boring.

Last year I had some calcium/potassium/water/water temp issues. If I fix these issues, I can maybe reach 800 or so in 150 like some of the better growers. I have a few patches that are larger but I already dread the amount of work it takes to get a good return on investment from a large plant.
