Got my little buddy helping me out in the patch. He is great at helping keep the weeds in check. Our plant is doing well. The main vine originally grew straight in the air and both sides of it split and flattened out. I was worried that it would be all over but it seems to be doing ok. It might not have the plumbing needed to produce a champion but we are having fun nonetheless.

The pumpkin on my main vine stopped growing so I am trying this one out that is growing on one of the secondary vines. 1984 Barron OTT 154.

1984 Barron progress photo. DAP 47, OTT 236, 286lbs. 10 day average is around 14lbs per day. It got a little scratched up early on and it shows. This was a backup that was not on my main vine. Not doing too bad for being on a secondary vine.
