From Mystery to Big Max


Hmmmm...we thought...mystery plant..looks like a crookneck squash...but the stem looks odd....




Something took a little chunk from it...our enemy the groundhog perhaps....


Wow, this is definitely not a summer squash...maybe a hubbard?.....



After much research....we were WAY off base....it's a pumpkin.....

 ....but not just ANY pumpkin...a Big Max Pumpkin....you know those gigantic use a crane to hoist it into the nearest farm vehicle and drive to a fair where Wilbur and Charlotte might be hanging out kind of pumpkin....

We are VERY excited. 


The kids think this is very cool. Me too. :)


It grew 3 inches in the last 2 days.


We'll keep you posted on Max's growth. 
He promises to be one GIGANTIC dude.

    1. I have dreams about this pumpkin! I measure it every day now. Yesterday no change, but we had 3 + inches of rain, so I think that's why we saw the 3 inches . Some people actually are obsessed with this, and hook up sugar drips!
