Pumpkin update!

Just got an updated photo of Pete's pumpkin and wanted to share.. it's now near 350 pounds!

Pete - what is the largest pumpkin you've ever grown and is this on track to beat that?

Enjoy! Happy Gardening!

  2. This only my second year trying this out and last year I had one this size but it developed a bad split and the fruit died.This year I am growing three plants so I will at least have a pumpkin for halloween...maybe. I don't have the equipment to move a pumpkin anywheres so unless someone wants it for display or it keeps on growing at new heights,it will probably live and die where it sits.Such is the life of a giant gourd!

    This pumpkin also has a bad split at the stem but it is still hanging in there and I am using an electric fan to keep things dry and captan/sulfer as a fungicide,which I did not do last year.
