Good evening, Growers!
I received these great images from my fellow UC Cooperative Extension Certified Master Gardener and veteran giant pumpkin grower, Linda Hales. Linda is growing her vines yards away from where the weigh-off will occur, on the grounds of The Centennial Heritage Museum in Santa Ana! Yes, this means Linda has reduced her transportation risks to pretty near zero. Plus, her pumpkin is already 91 pounds!
Thank you very much, Linda!
