Pumpkin Weight

My good neighbor up the street asked me to post the weight of my pumpkin. According to the charts it is an estimated 127 pounds and growing nicely daily. It looks like I will pass up last years pumpkin in the next 2-3 days.

I went on the RMGVG patch tour today. A great bunch of people. Saw four different patches with some fantastic setups. Hail nets, high tech water collection systems with foggers and automatic timers. Pretty cool stuff. I'm pretty sure I saw a new Colorado state record pumpkin today. Taped out about 118 inches. Great looking pumpkin and a really nice grower.

What is RMGVG?
I like your blog. I'm a 1st year pumpkin grower (BIG MAX). Next year might try a giant.
