Did some manicuring. Was hard not to terminate tertiaries as I have been trained and believe to do so. Instead was mostly taking slightly "older" leaves out. Got me thinking "what is the optimal life span of a pumpkin leaf?" Sure doesn't take long to fill in the gaps. Although pruning needs to be a little at a time as the whole structure could fall over easily If I take too much. As you can see these leaves are tall. there is an overhead light on from 5 a.m. till 9 at night to supplement. spray for aphids for first time. Off to Ontario today for 10 days. I hope it's all good when I come back.
