Well, yesterday I planted the 2010 crop of pumpkins. I planted a bit late last year and by Halloween I still had a number of green ones so I've planted this years pumpkin patch about 2 and a half weeks earlier. Another big difference this year should prove to really be a "big" difference. This year in addition to planting the regular pumpkins I have planted some "big max" pumpkins. Those are the kind that people grow for the competitions. Now, I'm not anticipating that I will have any 1000 lbs pumpkins. That would require a lot more work than I'm willing or able to put in. But, I am hoping for some that will be at least 50 lbs. I will of course keep you all posted.
