If rain is scarce, water your Squash, Pumpkin, and Cantaloupe plants deeply and regularly (weekly, or more often in hot, dry weather).
Mulch plants to keep them evenly moist and weed free. Side-dress with compost or 5-10-10 fertilizer when the plants are about 6in tall and again when they start to bloom.
As fruits begin to form on the Pumpkin plants, thin them to two fruits per vine.
