Just some personal notes from now on. The only thing left to report is the old seed contest pumpkin... I will not beat pumpkinguru the only alcolade I can give it is that finally after a long struggle with this plant it is finally too heavy to lift by hand. Not sure it will break 200 lb but there you have it. Second place maybe. Oh and the 1963.5 Stevens for the 150 contest... Feels solid finally the plant set a pumpkin long after I gave up on it. Its a dwarf also probably around 200 lb. I lost a lot of energy somewhere because the sister plot yielded one at 450.5 lb on a smaller weaker plant. But 200 lb is better than zero. It could have been a much better year... but it also could have been worse, so... I am still happy!

I hate to be boring but all I will be posting is some notes about the weather and prepping for next year.
