Giant Pumpkin Observatory

On the look-out!

Giant Pumpkin Observatory is Finished!

Good morning, Pumpkinistas!

As you are all very aware, giant pumpkin cultivation sometimes requires very specialized knowledge and equipment. In preparation of the 2014 season, I wanted to share some images of the giant pumpkin observatory that I put up this week-end. 

One never knows what's happening out in the garden after dark until now. This is an eight-foot tipi, based on original Native American designs. Surprisingly, it only took about an hour to set it up. It's very sturdy and comfortable inside. Other than a weird insect bite to the eye, there have been no other mishaps sleeping inside of it...
