Agreed. He puts so much effort into those plants, some of those stumps were like small eucalyptus trees. Awesome fruit.
P.S. Not that it's relevant, but my 1351 Stelts plant finally decided to grow. Now about 700sq ft with a fruit around 90lbs and growing strong. Cheers

Congrats again mate, 1507.9 lbs and just 62 days old is just amazing. Hopefully it stays in one piece for the summerland pumpkin comp, as an exhibition. I still hope to come up there for the weigh off.

Kyogle is going to be big this year! Oh and Dale, the camera charger lead was lost this year so uploading photos will be tricky. I'll see if my phone will do the trick. Clinton, is it possible for you to make the trip to kyogle this year? Should be well worth it as I hear some monsters will be competing.
