Two years ago I moved back to Maine after living in Georgia for 2 years. I've got about 2 acres of field in the very beginning stage of an emerging forest. In the late fall, I bought a (fairly new) rear tine tiller that wouldn't run for $50 on Craigslist, and decided that we were going to have a garden. Back in 2008... I think?I had a dream about growing giant pumpkins, then spent the next 30 days reading on this site planted for the first year and got a 150ish lb pumpkin from some seeds I bought from Howard Dill. 2nd year, I grew a big yellow pumpkin from some seeds donated by a friendly gentleman on this site, didn't get it weighed because I had no real way to transport, but it taped at 450lbs. Here I am again, now with a 2.5 year old that I'm trying to teach gardening the way my dad taught me. Except instead of growing vegetables that I didn't want to eat, hopefully a big orange pumpkin will make it a little more fun. Looking forward to a great year. Any pumpkin on the front porch in October will be a success. Thank you in advance Steve Marley for the start of my new seed drawer.
