2005 Haist, day 30. I didn't post a day 20 on this one because I wasn't sure it was going to make it. After pollination, I didn't guide the fruit down easy and the stem took quite a bend, and that's what possibly caused a very lopsided pumpkin. It has filled out nicely, except the bottom is really tucked under. Not a disaster, my 1911 last year had a similar situation.

Estimates about 425#, which is a little disappointing considering the near perfect weather lately. Its sibbed with the 2005 that Dave Stelts is growing as I happened to be in the area the day before pollination so it kind of worked out.
