Ray Rausch's 2013 Season
Good afternoon, Pumpkinistas!
I received these great images from Ethel and Ray Rausch a couple of days ago. I am glad that someone is having a great season! Please note the first picture, which shows how Ray initially protected his seedling. Now, of course, I am sure that any small rodents are probably quite intimidated by the size of the vine (and pumpkin!).
I think we have a contender...
