Growing Pumpkin

06 Jan 09 Paul (Australia - temperate climate)
Water pumpkins when they show signs of limp leaves, first thing in the morning. Then have a look after the heat of the day is over and if they are wilting again water them. I pollinate with a small desk duster, the static electricity one that attracts dust, and swish it into the male flowers then into the females everyday till the females show sign of swelling. Be carefull you use one duster for one variety. Dusters are as cheap as chips and last many seasons.
