A period of warm weather this week has led to fast growth, but cold wet weather yesterday and today has slowed things down. We've had guttation on the leaf tips which is no good because I need that transpiration stream to get some calcium to the young fruit which is currently setting itself up as to how it will grow. The earlier experiment with cytokinin hasn't killed the backup pumpkin or caused it to split, which I thought was the main risk, so it's still there growing away on the main vine, just visible in the centre of the pic. I'll apply some to 'the one' now as well (not visible here). I'll know if it takes in a week or so, and if it does then off comes the backup and it's all or nothing.
