First year diary - and will end up being one of the smallest pumpkins with a diary. Iím going to give Glenn (North Shore Boyz) a run at the Saanich Fair (labour day weekend) this year (along with other competition). I was able to squeak out a win over his 2019 Saanich Fair entry, with my PB 589lber. Got kelp and compost tilled into the patch at the end of March
