Here is My Pumpkin 'Dill Boy'
Here is a picture of my pumpkin plant. I'm calling him 'Dill Boy' in honor of Howard Dill. The seeds for this plant came from Howard and has parentage that could give a 300-500 pound pumpkin. I'm shooting for a 300 pound pumpkin this year but would be thrilled with a 500 pounder (or bigger). You might see some holes in the leaves. Hail did a little bit of damage two days ago before the plant could get covered, but it seems to be doing fine now. I'll post new pictures from time to time so you can keep up on it's progress if you wish.
