    Kind of? I know how to keep plants warm, but I can only keep them so cool. But me personally, I am good with the warmer weather.

    Seriously, how does it get sooooo hot, sooooooo darn fast!!!!!!!!! Pumpkins basically shut down at 90 degrees, and look at my forecast. Heck, 90 degree high is the coolest for the next week.

    LOL....the shade cloth does make it seem more sinister in nature. I will admit that when I am inside, it does feel awkward like I am waiting for someone to tell me I can't be doing this.

    The B.E.E. (Bug Exclusion Enclosure) is rounding into form. I have the insect netting over the entire 1200sqft. and the shade netting on the western half is up and the eastern half is secured on one side but not stretched out. As you can see the shade netting does not run the entire length of the structure. The one corner of my patch is in constant shade starting around 2pm so I am letting that end get a little more sunshine. I have learned a lot of lessons during the process and hopefully...

    It is a never ending learning process. My first two years, I could not get a pumpkin to the finish line. Not sure about your space size, but I have found that my deer will not jump over a DOT silt fence. You can get it at Home Depot for like $50 for a hundred feet. You can see the black silt fence in the pics above around my patch. And another plus is that the silt fence will help act as a wind barrier.

    Poly fence up. I am taking an afternoon break and will be back at it tonight. The goal is to get the middle pvc row installed. The middle row will be like a towel bar and I will drape the netting and shade cloth from one side over the bar to the other side.

    Up and working on the enclosure at about 8am this morning. I have all of the pvc side wall structures completed. Next step, to roll out the plastic sheeting and connect it to the pvc. You can see the vine on the right is about five outside of the hoop house which puts the overall length at about 8 feet.

    Plenty of time left for Halloween growers such as yourself. If I have a pumpkin worth getting an official weight on then Sept.5 is my weigh-off date. My local fair is September 20th. My goal was to be pollinated by June 1st, plus with the heat any July pollination is iffy. Believe me, when you post that pic of all your pumpkins displayed nicely it will make me feel like I was lazy. :D

    Last cold snap of the year. Suppose to be a low of 49 tonight, then mid 60's for the low over the next 10 days. Heck, next Wednesday is suppose to be high of 90. Talk about not having a spring. lol

    If you don't have as many toothless children as The Skeleton Crew you can check out the auctions for example on ebay. Do a search for "acrylic resin dental teeth". Here's one link: If you do not them the fast you can get them here for under $2 on AliExpress....

    UO, since you mentioned bugs, I saw one of the coolest bugs of my life. I wish I had taken a pic. It had a light silver body and at the top of it body it had two giant black eye markings which were just for show. It looked like a fishing lure similar to the one below but the body was a shimmering silver grey with no real markings. Apparently it was a eastern-eyed click beetle.

    Is it possible after just two male flowers showing up? This early start has really been exciting. I will not let it grow because the vine is just 5 ft with no meaningful side laterals. But I have never had a pumpkin after just two male flowers. And this was one of the plants that I was going to cull. :rolleyes:

    That is such a cool idea. I mean that sounds really cool. I would love to see pics if you have them. I have a couple of packets of sunflower seeds myself. I had planned on planting them around the "bug bunker" to catch rain off and to add decoration. I grew sunflowers one time around the mailbox several years ago. They were really easy to grow. But now that I am trying to grow sunflowers for the fair, it will probably be hard as heck. The state fair has a category for the best...
