Here is a 1916 werner. Plant is healthy but has been slow growing with short nodes and hard to work with thick vines. The plant is a lot like the 2096 plant that grew the 1916 last year but this pumpkin is way off pace. Itís day 20 tomorrow and will estimate less than 100lbs.

Here is the 2166. I thought the plant was sterile right away because the male flowers were under developed with no pollen. Now the flowers all have pollen. This pumpkin is growing good but I wish I would have went with the next pumpkin on the plant because it was way more symmetrical. I figure this one will split around day 40.

Here is my only shot at a pb. It is my 1305 (2145x2096) from last year. My best plant and best pumpkin. It was pollinated by the 2528. This is day 18.

Here is the pumpkin off the 1304 werner day 37. I made an error in my earlier post calling it a 1305. This one made a new personal best day 30 at 527est. To this point itís the best grower Iíve had. hopefully it will keep plugging along.
