Day 60 for the (F: 1832.5 Graham 20 x M: 2365 Wolf 21 (from Ron Wallace))

OTT = 448
Est. Weight = 1,896 pounds
Avg. over last 10 days = 25.7 pounds per day

After going on the Vermont Giant Pumpkin Growers Summer Patch Tour the first order of business was to measure the pumpkin. It may have been a little after sun set, but nothing a headlamp and flashlight cannot help with;-)

Looking at the numbers it seems like the cutting back on the extras and also the age of the pumpkin have resulted in slower growth. This will hopefully allow the pumpkin to stay together to get weighed at the Woodstock Fair weigh-off. Even thought it will be a dmg entry after a full season of work it would be great to know what the pumpkin does actually weigh.
