Haha I was just going to ask about suckers!!! Too funny.
What time do you water your pumpkin plants? I understand it's best to water in the evenings while it's dark that way the plants holds the water throughout the day better. If you water in the morning, the sun evaporates the water more quickly and the plant loses moisture.
