At this time of year as the pumpkins get bigger and harder to measure, here is my trick on the measuring tape. In this and the previous picture you can see a piece of steel fastened to the end of the tape. Duct tape works well. It gives the tape end a lot of weight so that when it hits the ground on the opposite side of where you're standing you can easily read the the ott. The piece of steel is 9" long 3/4" wide and 3/16" thick. Or you can use any piece you have lying around.
