What a giant pumpkin! Growing giant vegetables would be so interesting and exciting. Can we grow such a giant pumpkin with seeds on our own??

Graham Rice

Well, you can grow a pretty big pumpkin with seeds from a seed company but it will need plenty of care and watering and feeding...

Wow, that sounds like an awfully big gamble to me. Who's to say that the 5 seeds produced would even germinate?

Landscaping Contractors Auckland

That is one massive vegetable. And the size of the seeds !!!!!!!! That must look even freakier on the landscape when it's actually in the garden growing.

Graham Rice

The whole strange world of growing monster vegetables is slightly mystifying to me, I have to say. Fun - but a little bit puzzling!


I'm curious to find out what blog system you're using? I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest website and I'd like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?
