Atlantic Giant pumpkins
bigtomatotaste,you didn't list what you are growing?
Hopefully everything I'm growing will be giant vegetables. The ones that have the best chance are the AG pumpkins, sunflowers, and a couple varieties of tomatoes.
Patrick - Shreveport, La.
giant carrot, giant watermelon, giant tomatoes,giant cucumbers, giant cantalope.
AG pumkins and the following sunflowers; Craven 99, Multi-head Hemker, Mammoth Russian and Kong. This is my first attempt at growing giants.
Ripley's giant green beans, Burpee Big Mama Tomato,
Ripley's giant green peppers
Giant Sunflowers: VivaVerde, Ripleys, Norm Craven 99, and Ripley's and Kong
pumpkins, cantaloupe, and tomatoes. also long gourds; they aren't "giant" but they're grown for length.
AG pumpkins, CC watermelon's, giant sunflowers, giant bushel gourds, humungus bell peppers (every year they get bigger), a few giant zucchini, giant rhubarb (well on it's way now), hummmm...... I know there's more.
I try to get everything giant at least once. If I like it, then I keep trying to get it bigger. =)

I will be planting these next year ,just got the seed and it's to late now.
Big Max Pumpkins (Not doing much yet. Had to replant 4 times.)
Giant Grey Stripe Sunflower (Seed packet says world's largest variety.) I don't know. I have two growing and they are 6' tall now.
Im growing north Alantics and I only have one right now I would say its about 50 pounds right now. Why did you have to replant your Big Macs? I started with about 40 seeds this year and I've had to replant them several times over the month of May and I only recieved 5 plants and one pumpkin. So I kinda know how you feel. Well best of luck to ya and just keep on trying, its got to get better.
