Anyone planting pumpkins in Arizona or other desert?
I feel as though they are fighting for survival, but they are growing. My leaves are about 6-8 inches in diameter, and while there are a lot of vines starting to shoot, I have no flowers yet. Monsoon season is just around the corner so hopefully, temps will drop and rain will fall but until then, my plants are very pale. I've treated them with fish emulsion fertilizer and have recently added compost and new soil around them. The are watered with a soaker drip system 3 times a day, but still, as with everything in my garden, grow painstakingly slow.
