Anybody started yet? Yesterday I tilled my garden and got it ready for planting. I live in south Georgia so risk of frost was gone a month ago. I plan on getting some seeds this week to go along with the seeds I saved from carving last year and plant Saturday. This is my second year attempting to grow with last year not going too well. I had a couple of pumpkins reach the size of baseballs and softballs but ended up turning to mush seemingly overnight. Crossing my fingers this year for at least a couple of good carving pumpkins this year.

We harvested the rest of the main patch at our place. Half dozen more pumpkins. About a dozen more minis as well. But, this one really stands out. Volunteer out in the corn, so no idea of variety, though it strongly resembles the ol zebs I used to grow, but really just the perfect pumpkin to me. My preferred shape, deeply ribbed, nice color, and good stem.

Now that's a good lookin' pumpkin!
