300-ish inches OTT and has gained 165 lbs for the week, not setting it on fire, but a solid 23.5 lbs per day. As Porkchop pointed out in the discussion board, the pumpkins grow on a trajectory that is pretty predictable when you’ve grown for a number of years. For us, this pumpkin has peaked and is on the down trajectory, today is day 47. We try and now pay attention to keeping the plant as happy and healthy as we can to maintain a slow and steady downward trajectory of weight gain. Next week when we measure, I would expect the daily growth average to be down to 18-19 lbs per day….and so on for the weeks going forward.
