Pumpkins



I know some of you grow pumpkins, so when I found these hints from a man who grows GIANT pumpkins..... I figured I'd pass them on.

He only does two things!

1. as the vines grow, BURY THEM! this gives the pumpkin a super superior root system

2. and tons of organic fertilizer

That's it!!!

Unfortunately my "Magic pumpkin" seeds did not produce any pumpkins...sigh.... but it was worth a try!

Oh no sweetie, it wasn't your seeds!!! They grew like nuts, and so cute cause the stones stayed on the leaves as they grew, but then we went for 2 months without rain and 90 degree weather... and they wilted away!
