checking the pumpkin


Last week this pumpkin was the size of a marble, now it's bigger than a tennis ball. We'll be checking on it at least once a week so you can see the progress. This hybrid has reached weights of over 1400lbs. I'll be happy if we can produce a 200 pounder.

What would you do with a 200 lb pumpkin? How do you move that without it going "splat" all over you?

I plan to give a 200 pounder to Marley's first grade class for Halloween if I can get enough help to lift it into my truck. I like to do things like this to give the grand kids memories. It will also make a lot of pumpkin pies.
