This gorgeous thing is my 150 sq ft kin. There's one last flower opening tomorrow, which I will pollinate, but this one here may end up being my keeper despite being the Quasimodo of pumpkins. I've grown enough pumpkins that I dont care about perfection, I'm game for trying a risky but more interesting one.

Plant looked good before, added a huge heap of boron, copper, zinc, and I forget what else, looks super amazing now. I think it actually wants to grow a pumpkin now! The other kin is a fair distance from this one, so no immediate resource conflict, I'll let both grow for couple more weeks then decide.

I guess the question is, which micronutrient was the original cause of all the shrivel trouble? (Or was it indeed all 3...?)
