Two hot days then drizzle. My pumpkins sure were poor performers this year. The plants could look a little better but the real issue has been the roots i think. Hard to grow big without sufficient healthy roots. I think my mistake was to think just reading the leaves would tell me everything. Root health probably corresponds to pumpkin size more than leaf health. Plants look ok... but its the roots that determine if the pumpkin goes. Like, its nice to have some green in your wallet... but if the store shelves are empty, you are not gonna get your shopping done.
