Day 10 Day 7 (F: 1832.5 Graham 20 x M: 2365 Wolf 21 (from Ron Wallace))

Image quality may not be the best because a friend stopped over and this image is from their phone camera which is the only day 10 picture of the pumpkin. It is still early and measuring at this size is more likely to do more harm than good so the image is all the data that is collected for day 10.

Comparing to the previous day 7 image the vine has been lifted via a pool noodle so the pumpkin is now sitting level. It is critical to get the pumpkin positioned correctly now so when the bottom flat spot starts it will be in the most advantageous area. If the flat spot starts to form and the pumpkin is out of position it is much harder to correct. Little tips like this now can save a lot of work and potential issues later in the season.
