Tom on the left, myself on the right. Serious pumpkin talk going on here! :) Trading growing secrets maybe? Or just having fun and talking pumpkins.
What is this in Tom's patch? It can't be, a squash!!!! This pumpkin plant was grown from my own pumpkin seed from last year, the 861 Fredricks. It was a pumpkin seed!!! lol, Oh well, always fun to have a surprise.
On the way home, did a quick stop at another patch, some serious competition here! If you look real close in the photo, you can see quite a large pumpkin in the patch that is covered up by some kind of tarp laying over it. I snuck a secret shot of this growers patch from the road and then took off!!!! :) Could this also be a secret colossal fruit and county record too??? The mystery deepens!
