One thing I forgot to mention is the size of the spaghetti squash. The first three squash were on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd secondaries of the plant and they set quite early on in the season. The biggest spaghetti squash of all was pollinated on the primary vine some 6' down and grew extremely quickly. Just goes to show the differnce between primary and secondary (despite have 3 secondary squash).
I wonder what my 1366Paton would have given me if I had kept the pumpkin at 17'?

Also, remeasured my pumpkin today: cc 108.5, ss 67.5, bs 66 = 242 OTT = 307 lbs. Looks like I hit my target just need to get the scales out to prove it.

I took the cover off a week ago and you can see where the little bit of extra growth has split the skin that is hardening up. Only small cracks but something to avoid next year with a fast growing one towards the end of the season (I hope)
