A Pumpkin  is 'da Vine!!

At this early point in the season, pumpkin growers should focus upon healthy growth of their plants. A big, healthy support system will later on fuel the development of huge, orange fruit.....pumpkins!

Rich soil, ample amounts of well rotted compost, and a regular application of fertilizers will provide the fuel your plants need for stellar growth. In early July, those big, vigorous vines will produce lots of male and female flowers, and the pollination period will begin.

Here are some tips for early season care:

  •  Feed me, feed me - Pumpkin plants have voracious appetites. Early season focus should be upon nitrogen to fuel growth.
  • Watch out for early season pests. Tops among them is the cucumber beetle, which is easily controlled by Sevin and other insecticides.
  • Weed the patch - keep the patch weeded so your seedlings don't have to compete for water and nutrients.
  • Provide a constant supply of water - Keep the soil moist, but not wet at all times. Steady moisture levels translates into steady growth.
  • Cover the vines with garden soil. This promotes secondary root growth, and results in much bigger pumpkins.
