Sunny again... Like a kid figurong out a light switch.

More about my best grower so far... Was thinking its strange that the best grower is on a plant that was showing a magnesium deficiency... Was the deficiency because I threw down too much gypsum? All I know is, I dont need to be too concerned about the magnesium issue I was having earlier this year, since it did not affect the pumpkin. It even might have helped the pumpkin gain the necessary calcium and potassium to be a little short on magnesium? Very ordinary leaves on this plant not huge not luxurious. Not very waxy. And it wilts easily.... So maybe its transpiring faster than the other plants.... Maybe that is helping the pumpkin/ helping with the photosynthates.

I am writing this down not because it makes any sense, but because hopefully some day I will figure it out.
