Top Stem Split Update (Initial Cut Made on July 17th, 7-days ago)

The top preventative stem cut did not open much but has healed over. This was likely not needed looking back but the original split certainly seems to have been slow to progress post stem cutting.

This is a great little trick to try and help keep a pumpkin going and not lose it to a stem split into the cavity. It seems this would be most effective if caught early in the process, which is why daily inspects of the plant and pumpkin are so important.
