First submission, 2.02 pounder for team 10. Will probably not be a final entry, as I have three healthy plants with healthy fruit.
I'll be going to Prince Edward County next weekend, and I'm hoping to see some more really big pumpkins. Also hoping to see some more giant tomatoes. Will be bringing a squash, cabbage, watermelon, and rutabaga.
This us the watermelon about 2 months ago, and it is currently at 50ish pounds.
The squash is at about 420, and it has a track record of going light, about percent, so maybe 400? Hopefully it will go heavy, and make 450+ but im just hoping. We were going to try and bring a 400 pound pumpkin, but stem rotted out, into cavity.
Best of luck to any one bringing fruit!
On there now Noah
While I am thinking of it, I wanted to know when the leaderboard would be updated next?
Looks good Noah
It had a three way measurement of 18, 17 15, or something. So it also went light. Happy I got a second weighed though!☺️
I picked it on Wednesday, and weighed it,
2pounds 0.2 ounces, or 2.0125 pounds. Bottom was completely solid, and had just small hints of cracks, so glad I picked it.
He's an ugly one for sure, but that brings my total weight for team 10 to 4.0325 pounds. I have no others going, but I have a few flowers, that could make 1-2 pounds. Good luck everyone!
Starting to flash, the suspense is killing me!
I hope it holds together!
My dreams are filled with tomatoes! It is soon hipnotizing. You are feeling sleep, verry sleepy...
Numbers are 18, 17,16. Even if it has 0.0004, it could be 1.95. If it goes heavy and gets 0.00055, then could be 2.7 probably in the middle around 2.3.
That's too bad. Hopefully my other continues to grow, an not rot. I will get it's numbers later today. By the way, I loved your seeds! They were the only tomato seeds in the pack, and without them I wouldn't have passed 2.02 pounds. So thanks!
LOL loved the video and size doesn't matter. If it's got a bad spot and it's leaking it's disqualified.
Ah well :(
I still have another going almost the same size. Quick question though, would it have been allowed if the damage was a quarter of the size? Probably not, but just wondering.
Ps, this was me when I read your post. ;) lol!
Sorry Noah but that one is definitely damaged. Your scale had to be wet once you weighed it
Second entry for team 10. Not technically leaking, but doesn't look good either.
Off the 3.51 DeMars. 2 pounds 2.2 ounces. Or 2.14.
Final three way measurement is 19.5, 17.5, and 15. This gives it an m factor of 0.00042. This is low, but I believe it is due to the nonripeness. Please reply and tell me if it counts. Thanks!
Looked outside at the tomatoes, and saw that my bigger was turning red. I then examined their bottoms, and took them out of the hammocks. I was shocked when I gazed upon a rot spot, the size of a loonie! This was astonishing, as I had thoroughly inspected them not 2 days ago! I scrape the rot out with my finger, and will hope for the best. Will probably also apple sulphur to the wound later. Wish me luck! I'll need it....
2 and 3, not 2 and . Sorry.
I am fine with seeds, I have 12 from the 2020 GVGO seed pack, and I already know which 4 I will start, and for squash and tomatoes, I had my eyes on a few from the prince Edward county seed sale. Thanks though. The only problem I have, is I can only use the money I win, to buy growing supplies, so it would be appreciated, if you could give me some hints. I have my two tomatoes, looking like 2 and pounds, so they should also be PBs! I am also trying for an early September weigh off every year, so it will be difficult to get over a thousand, but 500 plus is definitely in the future. If you have any advice, please post some help for me.
Send me an email and we'll talk about swapping seeds. I don't grow pumpkins any more so I give away all my pumpkin seeds. firstname.lastname@example.org
Congrats Noah and you should be proud. A lot of work growing pumpkins and beating your PB is what it's all about.
Weighed my bigger pumpkin yesterday, and I know it's nothing to be proud of, but it was 240 pounds! That's 24 pounds bigger than my previous best. Also weighed a 140 pound squash, which was 7 pounds off of a PB. Hoping to keep another squash and pumpkin growing, along with some narrows, and tomatoes, and a watermelon, for the Wellington weigh off. Here is a picture of all my families entries to last nights weigh off.
I am in the middle with my pumpkin and squash.
Hopefully next year will be better!
