High Tech Pumpkin Growing

This may be the first pic of a pumpkin patch ever taken with an iPhone 3G. We are taking growing to new high tech levels from this point forward!

The pumpkin continues to grow well. 4 inches since yesterday. I would like to see 5 per day but we will take it. Lots of new growth on the plant today. It was hot but a couple of degrees cooler than it has been with a little extra water so we saw lots of new vine growth. This part of the season gets kind of hard. The plant is so massive it can take a lot of time just doing basic vine maintenance every day. I'm beginning to see how Jutras could spend 20-30 hours per week in the patch maintaining 4 plants.
