Update and pictures from Carol Lycette, Seattle, WA!

Good evening, Growers!

Not to be outdone, Carol, daughter of Bill Lycette, sent in these pictures:

"Hi Stuart,

My father, Bill Lycette, recently had a post of his pumpkin progress on your site and I wanted to see if I could as well. We have a little friendly family competition going on to see who can grow the biggest, baddest pumpkin. I think I have the advantage because of the longer days up here in Seattle.

Is there a way to post my pumpkin picture from today on your Pumpkinmania site?

Thank you,

Carol "

Indeed! Carol's right, the north latitudes have longer days of gentler sunshine, while we in Southern California have a longer growing season with higher/hot temperatures.
