May I just suggest that the winner will be photographed wearing a Cinderella costume next to their pumpkin 'coach'.

Last year my wife decided she wanted to grow big pumpkins. We had a few of them that got around 100lb which is nowhere near what you guys are probably shooting for. I had a fit just trying to get the "big" pumpkins out of the garden. I told her not to even think about it this year. I'll just follow along and see the results. Good luck to everyone participating.

I got the garden worked yesterday and had hoped to make the mound, (secret ingredient included)and spread the warming ground cover today. Mother nature being who she is, it has rained most of the night, temp. dropped to +3, and wind blowing like a banshee. Ah well, tomorrow is another day.

I got some "Big Max" pumpkin seeds I'm going to plant but I got to wait for the ground to dry up.

I will enter my 4 yo granddaughter in that pumpkin contest.  Not using the super giant seeds but seed that are to produce up to 500 lbs.  She helped build the mound of dirt, put the 5 seeds in and covered with fine dirt and patted it down.  She watches it ever time she come over to visit.  So this is HER project this year.  She has two nice long veins growing and a couple blossoms now.  Was planted around the first of June.

Guess we are going to have to replant.  the first one up and died.  I think the spray from the neighbors field go it.  didn't bother anything else though.  anyway, will replant as soon as it dries up enough.

So how are the pumpkins coming? I'm afraid my project has been relegated to the "next year" category. Suffice it to say that when eight cows get out of the fence there's not much left of a giant pumpkin. I'll spare you the gory details, but the patch has been well fertilized, if you know what I mean.    :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:
