It is day number 7 since pollinated the 1791 pumpkin plant. I'm going to name this pumpkin Bo. I watched a show on ESPN this last winter about Bo Jackson and thought Bo would be the perfect name for a giant pumpkin. Hopefully he will live up to his name.
So far Bo is growing nicely and is shined up. I think this pollination will take. He has a nice long stem. My guess that is from the 2009 side. He also has a little bit of length to his shape. Hopefully that will mean it won't turn into a wheel.
