I think she is a dud. 4 DAP.

The growth of the secondary here is more dominant than I would like. It might not affect the pumpkin, but maybe it does. Hard to know. Some growers remove the leaf here because it will start to scratch and conflict with the pumpkin. I think its an important leaf but its certainly inconvenient especially when its directly under the pumpkin. An idea---it could be bent out of the way (likely w/damage to the stalk but cracked or bent leaves can still contribute) and staked/artificially supported, rather than completely removed. There is a whole spectrum of opinions some folks will hate this idea. Its just an idea. Really, I dont know what I am doing... I am just forwarding some ideas. Not the absolute truth---which some of us may be seeking---idk.
