I live in Southwestern Ontario Canada... close to the shores of Lake Erie...about 45 min.from Windsor We have warm summer days ...and usually cool evenings due to our lake location. Usually always a constant wind...and late and early frosts. Our soil or course is that lovely CLAY...So as you follow my journal...Please keep in mind what works for me ..May not work for you. I would apppreciate any and all feed backs on my journal...and any and all tips or info would be helpful.

I harvested 200 mature seeds from Roid..516.9 lb..last year...self pollinated and mailed out seeds to P.E.I./ OHIO /PENN./MASS. waiting for a feed back on their progress.A few local growers...also have a few of my seeds.

PLANTS REFERRED TO IN AUGUST JOURNAL ARE 'ROID"#2 "ROID"#3

Weather is a just what the doctor ordered;much more tolerable for me and the pumpkin. took my first measurement this evening

CIRCUMFERENCE = 47.25"
