The largest pumpkin which is on the 1810 Porkchop seems to have petered out after averaging 10 lbs/day. No measurable growth for 4 days... sitting at 360lbs according to the tape. Had a female out at the end of the longest secondary that open pollinated. I think I'm gonna let that one grow just to see what we can squeeze out. Smaller pumpkin on the 826 Zachmeier is chugging along at 5 lbs/day, which is awesome considering how small the plant is. Maybe 80 sq. feet of plant, I knew I didn't have enough water for 2 big pumpkins, so this one took a backseat when the 1810 really started chugging. Pumpkin tapes to 105 lbs this morning, and she is turning a nice pretty orange. I also have a 4 blossom mega on my best tomato plant that is pollinated and growing well, maybe a week old. Lets see what we can get. Considering I didn't have a garden this spring, I'd say this season has been a success!
