Oh that picture didnt show the wire. So here it is going all out with the plastic. Soil temp is in the 50's now. No heating cables I just dumped a barrel of warm water under the plant and then used a barrel of warm dirt to fill in around it. Instantly fixed that problem. It's not in the mid 60's or 70's though so the growth will be a bit slow but slow is ok. Dropping a huge plant into the ground in March lol... that gives you a whole lot of time to kill. The idea here is to get a fully mature pumpkin to the fair at the end of August. Last time I figure I cost myself 200 lbs because the pumpkin was still growing. This time I want to give it the full 100 days on the vine!!
