A Tale of Two Pumpkin Plants
The first picture below is a picture of the plant that grew my 755 pound pumpkin in 2008. The second picture is of my 1566 Rodonis plant this year. Both pictures were taken on June 16th. The 755 plant was planted 10 days earlier and the holes in it are from a hail storm that pummeled the plant about 7 days before the pictures was taken. I estimate that the 755 plant was about 4.5 feet long. The 1566 is about 7.5 feet long now.
