The People/Plant Connection

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!
