The Grays' Watering System in Action!

Good morning, Pumpkinistas!

I received these images and comment from Mike and Susan Gray's plant and watering system. You'll recall that the Grays are veteran giant pumpkin growers and placed at last year's weigh-off. Necessity is the mother of invention, and you can see the results for yourself here. At this stage, the water is being directed exactly where it's needed. Plus, the visual effect alone is stunning. It's like a miniature version of the Bellagio, but for giant pumpkins.

Their comment: 

"Hi Stuart: Looking good so far, 5 true leaves. Can't wait for the vine to take off and run. Mike and Susan"

Me, too!
