I marked in blue where the water puddles on top. Its dry at the moment but I wanted to take a moment post about this 'problem'.

Blossom down isnt any more difficult than a regular pumpkin once you get over the initial learning curve... except possibly in this one feature. The puddling of the water hasnt caused me problems.. but I do blow the water off. I use a battery operated leaf blower. It's a small chore. But I do enjoy working on this plant it probably takes a half hour a day to dote on this plant/pumpkin.

I did put a couple drops worth of daconil in the crease at the pumpkin and I'm using a box fan when the humidity is too high and when things get wet.

Anyhow... thought I would fully explain this whole issue for those who are curious!
