So my pumpkins shut down to a slow crawl this last week gaining only 15-20 lbs. a day. The temps are better today and expected to be in the 80's most of the day. In fact right now at 9:00 a.m. it's 69. Should I expect growth to rebound? If so when?

What DAP are they? I take it no shade/ overhead watering? So, drip lines...?

30-40 DAP - overhead watering. There under sheets with a shade tarp. Last week heat was brutal.

Heat sucks...I'm happy when I'm in the 90s. I don't normally see any rebound but if you keep them well fed and watered their growth will continue as long as your plant is healthy.

Yeah, rebounds are hard to get back. What Jake said, keep the plant healthy and 20 a day for the next month will add up!

Yeah, those 90s can be pretty rough.

Today was Day 19 of 100+ in the month of July here.
