Hi all! Looking for some help on what’s going wrong with my pumpkin plants and also how to fix it. My pumpkin plants started off very strong and looked beautiful but now have turned into a yellow mess. At first I was watering with a wand once per day but have switched to a soaker hose just to make it easier since they have grown double in size. Fertilizing every week. Here are some before and after pics

Thoroughly watering once a week is plenty of water. You cannot give a plant too much water but, giving water too often will kill a plant.

And...you need an insecticide and a fungal spray program. They are not as bad a cucumbers in that regard, thank goodness. Still, they will have unwanted attention by insects that carry disease and fungus since you are on the ground.
