First time giant grower (but have grown pumpkins and gourds for the kids for years).

Here is my 1232 Wallace. I didn't plant until Memorial Day. Got a late start on the seeds. I feel that my giant pumpkin plants are behind nearly all of the ones I see here. That's okay -- I'll be happy with a few hundred pounder! I've never broken 100 before!

There is a female flower at 10 feet, should I pollinate it when it opens? I ask because there isn't "body" or secondary growth on the plant yet. I'll post some more pics. I suspect that by the time it opens, in about five to seven days, the plant will fill out. It's growing quickly now. I'll post some more views.
