compareI am really only growing two pumpkins for size.  You can see the one on the right has a beautiful yellow color so I’m hoping for a dark red-orange final color.

Neither pumpkin is going to break any records this year! In fact, I’m several hundred pounds behind where I should be.  I have been out of town this summer for at least a month total.  One stretch, I was out of town for almost two weeks during a critical time that you need to care for the plant.  I thought I could automate most of it, but this has proven me wrong.  I can’t imagine how much time some growers spend in their patch each season.  This hobby can consume large amounts of time to do it correctly.  I am experimenting with a few things this year to see how it works out and having fun trying!

Grow Big and Orange!
