Today I pollinated two 'greenie' female flowers on the 903 Noel 07 plant. Perfect weather-not too hot. On one of the flowers it was a huge 5 lobe. Biggest I've ever seen on any pumpkin in my short GP career(lol). I like this plant.

Went out and got some whirly birds that spin, coyote urine and other stinky granular repellant stuff to try to keep the squirrel away. It is definitely a rock squirrel-saw its rocky hole where it lives. Will try this first but the exterminator is the next call..

Setting up a waterproof plant cam that I just got (not that we really need it here). It will be on the 895 Grande 08 pumpkin. It will take a picture and record it's growth once a day. Growing real well. Haven't named that pumpkin yet as it may be culled. There are two others farther out on the main vine in which case I will move the camera.
