After a very wet and cold start it looks like there may be some hope to a good season. Just have to survive the chance of frost tonight. The biggest 2145 McMullen plant is way out of the hoop house and it looks like a June pollination will happen this season.
After a few years sabbatical, i will be growing a couple pumpkins in 2020. I plan to keep things as simple as possible with just the two The seeds have not been finalized . The short list includes the 2005 Haist, 1911 Urena, 2114 Wallace, 1871 Bryson and the 1884 Crews. I started the prep last fall on two 850 ft2 planting sites. Unfortunately I didn't get everything i had planned on completed in the fall. Hopefully, i will be able to get in there early. I will be building much larger clotches than in the past. Likely close to 200ft2 each. I'm planning on in ground as well as above ground heat.
