That's all very interesting, but how big is your pumpkin?

Mine has slowed down and won't break any records this year.  Oh well.  ::)
Cheese makes everything better.

Mine has stopped as well. All the vines are dying off. I will leave on until cold weather is forecast.

Harvested my Invincibles...5 good sized ones all matured.

You'll need some warm weather which i think judging by the long term forecast is 'no chance'.

If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!
