Today I pollinated a female flower on the 1204 Scherber plant with the 1810 Stevens. The 1810 is a male flower from a plant grown from a seed that came from the world record 1,810 pound pumpkin that Chris Stevens grew last year. The female flower was a perfect 5 lobe flower that is at about 12 feet (which is just the right distance from the main stump). It is going to be hot in the pumpkin patch today so I'll have the misters going. I'm hoping this pollination takes because the timing, position and distance is just ideal.
If this pumpkin grows well and becomes my keeper (I only grow one pumpkin per plant) then I will name it Ricky (i.e. Ricky Gervais). Pictured below is the 868 Johnson followed by the 1204 Scherber.
