The Pumpkin is Still Growing

I put a tape measure on the pumpkin today.  About every five days I've been doing that to make sure it is still growing.  It is still putting on the pounds, albeit slowly.  5-6 pounds a day.  At this point of the season, with descent weather we've been having I would be hoping for 10-12 pounds a day right right now.

Surprisingly good late season growth on this plant.  The main is still growing and putting on side vines.  That should help keep the growing going a longer into the season.  My goad is to keep the pumpkin growing into the first week of October.

Gave the plant some RAW Grow with seaweed today.
