1685 Pumpkin is Still Growing
Put the tape measure on the 1685 pumpkin today to see with the cold weather if the plant survived at all. The leaves were all frosted away two days ago. Was a bit surprised to see that it is still growing and growing a descent amount for this late in the season. Actually measured it twice because I didn't think the numbers could be right after two mild frosts this week. Yesterday and the day before we dipped just below freezing. But according to the measurements, let's just say a half-ton pickup truck might not be able to carry this pumpkin now. The truth is on the scale and I think this pumpkin will go light still.
