The FP in the greenhouse was a plan C after plan A and B (both bushel gourds) died on me. The plant suffered heavily from the heat wave and didn't even produce side vines until later in the season, meaning the plant and the pumpkin are growing at the same time, which I usually don't like to have. It should continue to grow for a week or two more even though night temps are now at only 5 Celsius. At the moment it is also 100+ lbs, so unfortunately nothing special from my patch this year. All the other giant veg got roasted, so it's going to be a lean weigh-off this year.
