The patch is now 90% full and just a few secondaries yet to be terminated. This year, for the first time, I'm allowing the main vine to run out of the doors and continue outside so that I can have a bigger plant overall. Today it was terminated about 15ft past the pumpkin. We're approaching DAP 30 so peak fruit growth starts about now; I want all the sap pressure to go into the fruit, not the vine.
