    This is the first year I have had any success growing pumpkins. I grew a couple biggins! :D As a matter of fact I never grew a pumpkin as big as the little ones you can see it the picture. I hope the big ones last until Halloween.

    steve good job, i havent had that kind of luck with them ever !!!!
    i get lots of nice medium sized kins, but never anything bog !
    enjoy the "cinderellla coach" little ones, they are great for pie !!!!

    MY favorite way of cooking them, is simply splitting , seeding and baking , like any other squash , add cinnamon butter and brown sugar to the squash , and VOILA , my kids call it "easy pie"
    :D

    I don’t remember what type of pumpkins they were. Just suppose to grow big. I sprayed them with a mixture of Sea Magic from Park Seed and I mixed some Miracle-Grow and Epsom Salt with it and sprayed it one the plants every couple weeks.

    I think the Sea Magic is really something. It made a big difference in my garden. I’ll be using it again. Without the Miracle-Grow. Want to go all organic.
