Bringing the joy of gardening to people of all ages and abilities.
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!
