Here is today day 35. It's still growing it has been a fun year with the very late start, the hot and dry June followed by a mild July. My very late start might have actually saved me this year who knows. Pumpkin is averaging 25 pounds a day lets see if i can keep it growing till October 8th

On a really cool display at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Really great zoo and a ton of fun! They will be doing Trick or Treating for 6 days in a row...The kids will come and trick or treat and take pictures with the pumpkin...they even get to crawl on it if they would like to. Then on Nov. 1 they will put it in with the elephants very cool.
