I had just posted a picture of a beautiful pumpkin on www.facebook.com/PumpkinFanatics , and we had a hail storm roll through the evening of the 17th.  Unfortunately, our hail storms usually quite by the end of August and we had just removed our hail netting two weeks prior.  I took this photo the next day, but the plants are looking really rough compared to the photo.

Luckily two of my pumpkins were covered.  My 1223 Radach is still putting on 7 pounds a day at day 88.
