Best of luck to all of you and I can't wait to see the harvest in the fall!
    There are so many times we live vicariously through what others do online here. Often we'll see things that we think, "WOW, that is so cool," only to realize that our budget will never allow us to buy one or our skills at prop building aren't even near where the poster's are. But that's okay. We still love seeing the stuff, even it it's beyond our reach. Just knowing it's out there making kids and others happy or terrified is reward enough sometimes.

    Hey you, it's totally ok. Besides I’ll never compete in a Pumpkin contest but I love learning from everyone on the Pumpkin Growers.

    Don’t be to hard on yourself

    Yep.

    I'll never grow ginormous award winning pumpkins, have a yard full of cool repainted blow molds, or make some of the super cool props others here make, but I definitely want to see ALL OF THAT here.

    Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

    Upped the watering tonight to a half gallon per plant every other day. I get the feeling that my plants will start to vine in about a week or so. We have an early spring storm coming our way late tonight. They are forecasting like five hours of thunderstorms. I had some 4ft tall silt fence left so I put another fence barrier about 5 feet in front of the hoop. I am pretty sure that I am over secure, but the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry....... .

    Same storm hit us Wednesday night. They kept saying baseball size hail and 70mph winds, neither occurred. None the less I waited till today to transplant my seedlings and to start planting my early crops of corn and squash.

    Everything pulled through okay last night. Not sure how windy it was but the thunderstorms were the kind to wake you up at night. Between 2 am and when I got home a 6pm, the rain gauge measured 2 and half inches of rain. More rain on the way....
