there is a guy in a nearby town that grows one every year to enter in a statewide competition. grows it in a big patch on his front lawn so everyone can see how its doing. took second last year at 442lb. would have got 1st this year but it cracked a week before the competition. in our short summer a 400+ lb pumpkin is definitely a feat! treats it like a newborn!
Yes that would take lots of work, I think they may like the longer days further north and cooler summers but you have to start them indoors and then move them to a cold frame
yep. I’ve talked to him before. starts them in a greenhouse attached to his house a month before he puts them out. starts out with 10 then plants out the best 5. grows out 2 of the best to maturity.
I planted two of the seeds from this pumpkin to see if they were viable. As you can see they sprouted just fine. I grew no other squash or pumpkins last summer when this was blooming and hand pollinated it so this crossed back to its self. I did not get very many seeds but I have the extra seeds in packages of five. I have three sets, if you would like a set of five seeds PM me .
Charlie was actually Charlette! Googled the name for you “The name Charlette is a French baby name. In French the meaning of the name Charlette is: Feminine of Charles meaning manly.”
Yes in deed Clark, a girl she was, lol. I guess I should have considered that when naming, I am terrible at naming things , I had a dog named dog and kept a pup out of him and named him pup dog
One packet of free seeds left
My nephew named his dog deowge for dog.
