Ok itís the boring time of Winter and cabin fever has set in. Maggie is looking for something to do.

She was on the phone with Chops dog Saydee and they asked about a Winter Challenge. She heard us growers talking about growing contests for 150 sq ft, growing in buckets, growing for orange so why not a winter challenge. They are so smart.

For her seed choice Maggie picked some from her Dads 600 pound pumpkin from last year. He is excited about trying the 2005 Haist x self so letís give them a grow. The bag was a bit tough to open but she did it all on her own.

Seeds planted ! Now itís just sit back and watch them grow! The dogs have a official judge to keep track of the contest and answer any questions. Marv has agreed to oversee the contest. Any pooches interested in entering the challenge are free to give it a try. Just find some of your parents seed stash and help yourself to a few mouthfuls. They have way to many seeds anyway !
