A Sense of Place, A Sense of Home
My 365 Project (details of the project are on Sept 23 post)

20. The Pumpkin Seed

1600 lb. ...  really?

... a half-moon pumpkin festival’s record
for these western states

from a seed ... really?

have you ever had this desire
to know what it would be like
to raise a great “giant” pumpkin?

here is your chance
a gardener’s thrill of a life
your own home-grown “giant” & “great” pumpkin

you will need a seed.  yes, a seed ... really
and not any seed
-- a dill’s atlantic “GIANT” seed

what size pumpkin do you want?
what are you willing to pay for … that “seed”?

7 seeds 300-500 lb. pumpkin $ 3.75
3 seeds 700-900 ib. pumpkin $ 7.50
2 seeds 1000 ib. +   pumpkin $ 12.00

now comes april
let your garden challenge begin!

... oh  ...  you’ll also need
130 days ... plus fertilizing, irrigating, cultivating, weeding,
insect and disease prevention, stem control, thinning, love, care
and a desire for a new experience ... and ...
... don’t forget ... to provide shade to your "great pumpkin"
if the sun gets a little too hot

1600lb. ... really? ... maybe
