I'm curious, has anyone tried to rotate the pumpkins while they grow?
Absolutely. And have used a variety of suspension/support systems.But IIRC, the problem is that if the pumpkin reaches a thousand pounds and is spherical, the walls are more susceptible to fracture, and a breached pumpkin can't be entered into competitions.
whoa...that timelapse shows the pumpkin growing 20+ pounds A DAY~
