Giant pumpkin covered in sheet and tarp

Shade is Good

The sun can be harsh. Harsh on us, and harsh on pumpkins.

Having shade when it is sunny is great.

I’ve talked about shade in the past, talking about a home made shade structure here building a hoop type structure one year, show my basic tarp shade here and have a page about it as well.

The main thing to remember is it doesn’t have to be some sort of super structure, keep it simple and start with a sheet over your pumpkin.

It doesn’t matter if it gets wet either, it will dry out.

Next week I’ll have an update of how things are growing here.
