Good to see everyone's posts.

Fair pumpkin update. Sorry no pic, I am exhausted. Just a note:

I think (cross my fingers) I am at least on track with where I was last year. But last year was a very slow start and this year is shamefully slow too. 20 DAP. A bit under 3 ft circ. Crazy small.

I could improve the growth rate a lot with better roots/nutrition. Probably I should have a goal of a plant twice as big, which should be possible because they've grown at half the speed I think I can achieve. 250 sq ft or so at the moment... Another idea is that cool nights might set them back a week. I might want to consider using the greenhouse in the future. I so am happy with where things are at on this one. The only thing that could be better is if I wasnt dealing with chronic exhaustion/low energy. Retirement age should be 40.
