When to plant my Dill's Atlantic Giant
As I ask this question, Please be assured I have done my homework and I am ready to grow a Giant Pumpkin. My dilema, I want to break the current South Carolina record of 696 pounds. I don't think there is a South Carolina Pumpkin Festival (if anybody knows of one, PLEASE let me know) I would like to enter my "biggie" in the State Fair, (251 days from this posting) or at least enter it in my local fair (269 days from posting) How would I go about getting it weighed for the State Record? When should it get planted for the State Fair? I know they need 120-150 days for growing. Planting in the middle of May seems WAY too late! I would appreciate any help in this matter, If I could I would plant today, I know, only January and we WILL get more frosts. I should also add, I have a greenhouse and COULD plant today if it would help. Thank You in advance!
