Bringing the joy of gardening to people of all ages and abilities.
This is Paula's pumpkin now. It's hanging in there. Heat and all.
Pumpkins like the hot dry weather we are having.
However, they still need water every day.
A good cover of mulch at the base will help hold the moisture in.
Also, in the heat of the afternoon, you can build a shade for the plant and that helps it, too.
Good luck with your pumpkin!
