DAP 20. Nylon line of this type works great as a permanent measuring tape. (Pinch the line & it will hold the mark for the entire season!!!)

Right at two feet circ. -- which is small. The markings were increasing until last night which was especially cold--temps dipped below 40. I assume thats why the gain was down a bit on both.

DAP 25-30 should give the max gains normally but if nature refrigerates the pumpkin... this may prevent and/or delay the normal development. I believe near 60 degrees overnight would be better. Upper 30's does cut growth in half.
