A shashlik skewer instrument for measuring pumpkin growth :) At their current size it is hard to measure CC, and therefore I simply placed some shashlik skewers (2 cm separation from fruit and from one another) in front of the fruit (punched them into the styrofoam base). When the fruit hits a new stick it must have grown 2 cm into this direction (perhaps 2cm into the other direction as well, and thus 4 cm in diameter, which means ca. 12.5 cm in CC). Basically, it is just for confirming that the fruit is still growing rather than me trying to find another widest CC during the next measurement in case of some odd shaped ribs.
