It has been a great show. When do you expect the season finale?

It's still growing I measured it yesterday and it has gained another 9 pounds so it seems.
So right now it's 420 pounds
But by mid October it should be completely done for the season.
I'm still amazed that it even grew at all after the vine split.
It's gained 141 pounds since then It has been gaining around 2 to 3 pounds a day in the last
week but that should stop real soon. I'm only checking the size every three days now.
Once I harvest it your supposed to let it sit for 8 days to cure then gut it for the seeds.

Are you gonna sneak up on it in the dark with a hatchet when you administer the coup de grace?

Well I've all ready hinted around to the neighbor to help me move it close to the
house them things are hard to move by hand I don't have a backhoe to move it.
the last one that got to 365 pounds about gave all three of us hernia's and this one
is going to be around 75 pounds heavier. Were going to use a elk sled this time though.

Harvested the Pumpkin. I got it rolled over and there was a damn slug on the bottom of it.
It was the first one I saw all year. I'm going to go out in a minute and spread some Slug Bait.
Also some Sevin Granules that will get the bastards.

We got it leaned up against the house and that is far as it got.
That's a Soccer ball next to it.
