First year grower here. Got my seeds from a friend in Massachusetts. This pumpkin is an 857 Keenan. 32 DAP at 332 estimated weight 12 feet out on the main vine. I have about 600 sq feet in plant currently. Hoping to keep her alive for another two months!

I germinated this 857 Keenan on april 11th and put it in the Montana soil without doing much more than weeding a 10x10 area. I have been burning vines with a topsoil/gardening soil mix. I am learning to read the plant and provide it with what itís telling me it needs. Caught a potassium deficiency a little late but have been supplementing with a few products with decent success so far.
