Sorry been really shy on the diary this year... Its been a challenging year... with a few growers errors and Im sure we have had one of the wettest and coolest summers ever with more night under 50 than not. But the good news is 12 days out from weigh off, we still have 2 pumpkins going! The first been the 2145 at 403ott or just shy of 1400 lbs and man dosent she look solid.
