Good morning, Pumpkinistas!
Jim Fredricks in San Diego sent in these pictures and comments of his pumpkin. The juggernaut continues:
Just an update. Man it has been hot lately!!!! My fruit is on day 36 now, here are some pictures for your enjoyment. She continues to grow slow and steady, still gaining around 19 to 20 lbs a day. She hasn't ever hit a high weight gain, but she has been consistent. If she can keep up this for awhile longer, we won't have a record fruit, but a good fruit! :) Only time will tell. Atleast she isn't an ugly pumpkin! ;)
P.S. As of this morning, 7/21/2009, my fruit is around 390 lbs,., 387 to be exact. I think 700 lbs. is a good goal for the way the fruit is growing if it grows out a long time, and then, hopefully she weighs heavy!:)"
I think that at the rate of 19-20 pounds a day, we may have a new Pumpkinmania record! Thank you very much for your pictures and update!
