Dap 3. Stigma is firm. That's the best indicator I know of that the pollination was successful. Thank you so much for the help with that C2K.

I'll probably not post much. This is the halfway point for my season... glad to have made it this far but I'm needing to focus my full attention elsewhere.

The poly line will mark every circumference measurement, starting at DAP 0. I've wanted to do this for a couple years but I usually forget to measure the first 10 or 15 days. This year I will measure every day. It's very fast to do with the poly line. I just crimp the new measurement into the line. This is my version of having the pumpkin on a scale. I will be able to see changes in weather, moisture, etc. because it's very accurate if done right. I use a formula to convert the circumference to pounds. It's been spot on to the actual weight in the past so I dont use the OTT method. I just focus on the circumference. I'll update this diary 100 days from now! Looks good only 30 ft or so left in the 150 patch. Timing is everything in life! Thanks to a little help... I think we got this pollination timed just right!
