50” to 60” in circumference would be acceptable in my patch for day 20.

Day 30, 100” to 120” in circumference is OK with me.

I don’t do full OTT until day 30. I look for a 68 inch D20 circumference same as hobbit.

I’m currently 2 days behind that pace, day 22 for me at 68”.

In about 2010 I read a post that said to be on track for 1000 pounds, the circumference measurement should be at least 68.5 and the OTT 167 on Day 20. With that being said, in 2018 I was lucky enough to grow four pumpkins over 1000 pounds. None of them had reached the Day 20 benchmarks. The real test is Day 30 to 40.

Like everyone said 60-70 in cc day 20, 100-120 inch cc day 30. But what you really want to focus on is your plant. Keep that healthy and big and then the pumpkin will follow.

I actually have a printed copy of a benchmark chart for 1400 lbs if you would like email me at prettyboisnipes@gmail.com and i can send you a picture of it and you can use it for reference.
