A few weeks ago, Buzz Pinkham from Damariscotta Pumpkinfest, brought us a little baby pumpkin. This little one is the one that Jon agreed to grow. (Meaning, that Jon found someone to do the work for him.)  That person is Jackie from Fastenal in the K-Mart Shopping Center in Augusta.

So, thank you Jackie for doing the work for Jon. Here is Penelope the Pumpkin.  This was from a few weeks ago. Penelope is much bigger and growing daily. Just to give you an idea of how big it was to start with, that box she is growing in is only 24”x24”.
