Overall Plant Picture: (F: 1832.5 Graham ’20 x M: 2365 Wolf ’21 (from Ron Wallace))

The plant has been progressing well and the pumpkin is getting bigger so all is well… currently. The application of the beneficial insects can be seen and also the CMH lights over the area where the cold-frame was. These are still on the longest day of the year photoperiod. They come on a little before sun rise for about 2 hours and then come on around sun set for another 2 hours or so.

While these lights may not be covering much percentage of the plant the hope is that it keeps the plant thinking it is June, and continues its youthful growth and not it maturing/ripening stages until much later.
