Well, I gave it a shot this year, trying to grow a big pumpkin. I only tried watering this year, no extra fertilizer and according to my measurements, one should by over 200 and the other 180. My question is this. I am bring them both to a school at the end of October but I do not know if there is anything that I should be doing to it in the meantime. Is there anything? One has stayed a very light yellow color and the other is now starting to turn a nice deep orange. I am just worried that as it sits there and ripens I might lose weight or structural integrity. I appreciate any help you all can offer.
I can't wait till next year when I start fertilizing more. If I can do this just with extra watering...
