Pushing new growth everywhere (including this growth just past the pumpkin) and packing on ~10 lbs per day. DAP 58.

Short on magnesium but I got that dialed back in. Visually looks a bit boron low too I think. Playing whack a mole trying to address the deficiencies. I dont think magnesium helps pack pounds on directly itself but I think it will add longevity to the leaves and keep the plant from tanking early. Magnesium helps with aluminum toxicity in both plants and animals. Aluminum does nothing good and causes aging in both plants and animals.

The other deficiencies I've had have been, well, pretty much everything. I'm less certain about what excesses I may have, but I know I'm at the edge where I dont want to push any harder, except maybe calcium/silicates.
