Season is probably over. Have to see how the plants recover, but didn't look good this morning. Was supposed to be clear, but mother nature was a real B***H this morning. Had a popcorn storm come right over the garden. 40MPH winds, 1 inch of rain, and dime size hail all in 20 minutes. Of course my best plant, the 2075 Connolly took the brunt of it. Lots of leaves broken and cut. It had the best pumpkin I've ever had going on it, a 7/2 pollination. which was DAP 15 last night with an OTT of 149, putting on 15" per day, all with a backup 5' down the vine. UGH!!!
