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.
