Hail Netting

Well, we decided to go camping for a night and we had a significant hail storm happen on Friday.  I have lost almost all of the jack-o-lantern pumpkins we were growing.  All of the big pumpkin plants sustained damage and the temperature will not warm up.  We returned on Saturday at 10:30 am and it was still 56 degrees outside.  It never warmed up to 70 and it appears that we have another day where the temperature will not reach 70.

I will be applying a 60/40 milk solution as soon as I see some sun to help deter powdery mildew from taking over the plants.  Some of the plants were damaged so bad, that I might have to pull them, but I won’t know until it dries out and warms up.
