Tomorrow is the 1st (hopefully) annual "Great Pilley Pumpkin" lifting party... Will be using a lifting ring purchased from "The Ring King" (thanks Kyle). And very grateful for the help of Russ from Redwood Tree Service for bringing his Cherry Picker over and my brothers high school football teamate Mike of FFP fire protection for helping us out by not only providing use of his pickup.. but also driving us up to Ridgefield on Sunday.... Really hoping Punkelton goes heavy and tops 900lbs... Would be a phenomenal thing... Thanks also to my brother Doug (Knevins dad) for posting pics of Punkelton on his Facebook page which has since gained a "cult" following among friends and family... It may sound a lil weird... But a pumpkin really became a beacon of hope for people... That even in the toughest of times, to be able to follow along the growth of a pumpkin really cheered people up.... So much negativity in this world... And to be able to escape that... Even for just a lil bit... Is an awesome feeling... Many thanks also to the other growers on here... This really is just an awesome community!!! Good luck to everyone who still have 'kins to weigh off... (Except for Steve Mayden... May you come up just 1lb short of me!!!!! LMAO!!!!!). And with that last bit... Another special thanks to all the people in charge of all the weigh off sites... That despite Covid-19... You still found a way for us to get these pumpkins to a scale safely!!!
