But what do I know? I'm the proud father so my opinion doesn't count. Give me a shout out Steve if you think this pumpkin is better looking than most of the flat bottomed, caved-in giant pumpkins.
After a big jump in growth a few days ago the pumpkin has slowed down the last couple of days. I am now down to 18 inches remaining to reach my goal. I will need about 1/4 inch more growth per day and consistent good weather if I am going to achieve it. Right now it looks like the weather will be working in my favor over the next 10 days. I'm one of the few people in Colorado who likes an 89 degree day in September. The pumpkin sure likes the warmth.
