Kinda hard to refrigerate something if you let it leak out into the ground eh?


Then why do you even make holes in the first place?

Congratulations R_P, well deserved.

Hey, Rico.

Haven't checked in for about a year.

Glad to hear you're doing well over there and that the plumpkin passion has never petered like my personal pickle pining of past!

Stay in touch, old pal.

Get the poll up for next year and put me under the “5000+ kg” category.
Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

We already discussed this Dog, my solution was to divise an elastic pumpkin hammock, to suspend the pumpkin upright over a depression in the ground around it. The grower would adjust the slack/tension as the pumpkin grew, and if you put a load cell on in you could get real time weight and growth chart.

I have yet to be celebrated for this idea.

You should form a partnership with Rico in the giant pumpkin business. You guys would be like Reece's peanut butter cups of pumpkin growing.

You have not been celebrated because you brought forth an inelegant and cumbersome solution, engineer.

I say we grow pumpinks in an anti-gravity chamber!


You fool. That is equivalent to doping in the Giant pumpkin world. You want Rico to be banned from competition?

It also wouldnt work. It would still make a flattened side. You would need a revolving cradle or anti gravity as suggested.
