Well, when I said that Iíd cull one of the pumpkins on the Barron plant, I didnít really mean the next day but I looked at the calendar and realized Iím 10 days to 2 weeks behind where I want to be for pollination dates. Despite my own advice to newer growers, I went ahead and chopped the bigger/older fruit and went with the 4 day old freshly pollinated pumpkin. The plant itself is in hyper growth mode and secondaries are grasping at the soil with plenty of upper and lower rooting along the vines.

We got a good initial bend in the vine and have great positioning for this pumpkin to grow big. Will grow tertiary vines on the opposing secondary to fill in that remaining space.
