The Great Pumpkin

It has been a bad year for my giant pumpkins. We have had such a cool summer the pumpkins are growing at a snails pace. We have had plenty of rain, but not enough warm days. The highs have been in the 70s most of the summer. Tonight we are supposed to have a cool upper 40 degree low. BRRRRR..... Not ready for that! I got my plants in early enough, but did not have a good pollination until mid to late July. The one large pumpkin that I have is an estimated 260lb. baby. I guess that there is always next year. You can see some of my other plants in the background. They are beautiful plants, just no large pumpkins. Bumble is in the picture for size reference.
