Award winning large garden produce

Do you have your own success stories? My grandpa grew 400 lb pumpkins from Dills Giant pumpkin seeds (from PEI) & large Texas watermelons every year. I would have loved a 400 lb watermelon!

This boy has grown large pumpkins for years and improves on them every year he can. He is from Manitoba.

If you want to encourage children to garden & to persevere, show them this story.

    @LaurieLovesLearning I’ve never grown anything giant but many years ago I had a crack at growing gourds and rather successfully. All sorts of different shapes and sizes. I donated them to the local school, where they researched about them and painted them, happy kids.
