Eric Vossbrink: Dispatch from San Diego

Good afternoon, Pumpkinistas!
I have just received the latest update from Eric Vossbrink in San Diego:
"Pumpkin update…

At about week 4 and the pumpkin is maybe 25# set 7’ down a 15’ vine. I haven’t fertilized much yet and there has been no real sunshine or heat up to this point in the season so it’s slow growing. Not a whole lot of leaves or secondary vines.

Seen here:

With school out this after this week, I can sleep easy know that the vine is safe from little feet during the day.

There are some great photos on his blog of some sunflowers that Eric's growing this season too!
