Hi there, the plants have been in the ground for 49 days so far, and it has been a total of 80 days since the seeds have been planted.  This is about the time I am going to think about using a higher phosphate fertiliser,and start thinking about shade protection for the pumpkins.

Due to the conditions and the location, they haven’t had much water, but seem to be doing really well.  There are currently 6 small pumpkins forming, 3 on each plant.

Check out the video below to see how they are doing

As mentioned in the video, the pumpkins are looking about the same size at the same time as last year, I know i am WAY behind compared to other people’s, but only time will tell on how mine will go.
