I culled my first pollinated pumpkin this morning as it hadn't grown in a few days.  The second pollinated pumpkin on the vine was twice the size and a much better shape.  If this one aborts I'll be growing for halloween versus pumpkinfest.

Just growing one plant and one long gourd this year.  Doubt I will pollinate until end of July.  Until then I'm building strong roots and a strong plant.

Thanks to all those who have inquired about our beloved pumpkin cannon.......I regret to inform you that it has found a new home at Leatherberry Farms in Baraboo Wisconsin.  :'(

I hope everyone is growing a new personal best this season.
