It's been a long time since I last wrote but everything is going well in the giant pumpkin patch except once again I found a rabbit in the giant pumpkin patch running through the 2″ x 4″ field fencing around the patch. Then I left the 1048 Grande pumpkin uncovered and the next morning there were some leaves eaten. Maybe it will be good luck because the same thing happened last year in the same spot that the NM state record pumpkin came from. Luckily the leaves eaten were by the base of the plant and not the growing end of the vine. So I’ve been covering everything in the giant pumpkin patch until I can put some small 1″ chicken wire all around the fence. I got the fencing, just need the time to do it, so for now they will stay covered at night.
