Last year we planted seeds for huge 100#pumpkins and not one sprouted. This year we did not plant any and one volunteer came up all by itself in late July.
|After all the rain in Aug. and Sept. there was only one that developed and is over 20 pounds.|
|If it had started earlier we think it would have had a better chance of being a big one.|
|The stem is what is so interesting about this guy. It would have been big enough to support a huge one. Notice Gene's finger next to it.|
|A little mousey or squirrel started nibbling on it so we harvested alittle early.|
|Besides saving the seeds for next year, do we carve it, use it for a decoration or cook it!!??|
