Hello. I water my plant from a well and have often wondered if every time I water if I'm shocking my plant. Am I keeping my pumpkin from getting better gains? Any help, advice, comments from you good growers would be appreciated! Cheers,

I water from a well as well and it's freezing cold. So now I fill a 275 gallon water tank and let it warm up before putting it on the plants.

Yes you are. Do as Jaye Yohe suggests or get a cheap Chinese tankless water heater to heat the water on those days that you can't wait.

Thought so. Hmm. Next year I'll use a 45 gallon drum and water that way with a transfer pump. Thanks for the feedback! Muchly appreciated. I'm growing in a greenhouse so that probably helps a bit.
