field report and garden observation...along with my opinion...well in above video david talks about covering up nodes..well this patch was trying to get out of its perimeters so i tried moving a few vines early on. well even short vines when i started to fold them inwards inside area had already sent down a tap root. often 2 inches and side shoots as well. it was like a screw holding vines down. i am now of the opinion after seeing this throughout patch its a waste of time to cover the vine and maybe..just maybe doing more harm covering the vine with dirt?i have not gotten rain for awhile now and worried about production. so far first to bloom has fruit half size of soccer ball.i think they are the small sugar pumpkin.the others are just now showing hint of blooms coming on and entire patch is going to overtake tomatoes and more.they are going outside fence even.
