Getting a sun tan.

Here is a peek at my pumpkin on day 70. She is partially uncovered in the photo from her tent home! This is the time of year that you get to sit back and truly enjoy your pumpkin. It took a lot of work to get to this point in the season, and many growers don't ever get rewarded for all the work they do. Many disasters abruptly end many a' growers seasons, and this year, so far, I have truly been blessed with a nice fruit. She is still growing as of today. As for her weight, well, I won't know until she gets weighed! ok, I have to have some secrets still. A little size perspective, her tent structure made from pvc pipe is over 5 feet wide. I hope she weighs heavy, but we will see. My friend Vince's fruit has grown well too, I will send a photo sometime! Jim
