1/4 " mesh to keep tye mice out. Although cedar is a wood that dries rapidly, the extra airflow directly under the pumpkin wont hurt. This one will get hit by some irrigation possibly.
When the bottom becomes concave the screened hole will give some air circulation under the pumpkin, which will help if the boards are getting wet every few days... or every other day. (Or every day... Whatever.)

The only thing I dont like is this pallet will only hold an 800 lb pumpkin or so. 39" square. Probably sufficient in terms of where they are at this season, but usually its best not to set yourself up for future trouble...
