2294.5 Noel 2019 Outdoor Plant

This shows what the Aluminet is protecting. The plant may not be that large, but this is a critical time for aphids to start to become active based on previous years data. The weed block is out to reduce the weeding that is needed to be done at least at this point in the season. There is a chair over the main vine tip to help reduce the chance of it burning and this will be simply moved as the vine grows. Then when a pumpkin is seen as the chair moves away an umbrella will be put in its place to help protect the immature pumpkin.
