The pumpkin plant that we started in the house is well established outside in the ground and loving this hot, humid weather! Remember this plant began from a seed that was removed from a 400+lb pumpkin several years ago.
We're not sure if we'll get anything that big but I'm stacking the odds in our favor as I've wrapped the plant in pure compost and we've been watering it a plenty! Of course I'm anticipating we'll lose a great deal of lawn as this monster plant begins to stretch and grow but hey that's less I will need to cut.
Just hope the woodchucks keep their distance and don't mess with this dude.
