No Longer Contender for World's Largest Pumpkin

Ah, the pumpkin ripens. I guess that means my pumpkin is out of the running for the world's biggest pumpkin! Currently, this speciman is about the size of a small cantalope.

Ohio State University recommends "to protect the pumpkin from direct sunlight, construct a shade out of burlap or other lightweight material. This will prevent premature hardening of the outer skin and will allow the pumpkin to reach its full genetic potential in terms of physical size."
