This is my second bushel gourd on this plant pollinated 8-2. The first one had stem damage. It got too big too fast. This time I'm ready with some support.

Bushel gourd update.. This thing is rubbery and is still growing. The stand is 23" wide. Its now wider than the stand. Had a couple nights in the 40's. Hopefully it won't slow the growth that much.
