Sad Update… Pumpkin Rib Split

Not the update, I want to provide, but the pumpkin has developed a rib split into the cavity. Spray foam has been added to hopefully seal it up so it can be brought to an official weigh-off for a weight.

However, all special additions will be removed which include…
-Artificial lighting
-External heater
-Irrigation (less total water applied only once a day)
-Minimal fertilizer

The hope now is to keep the pumpkin alive and not cause the current split to expand more or induce more splitting. This is unfortunate especially after all of the extra inputs and challenges that were over come this season.
