Atlantic Giant Pumpkin experieces
I visited Howard Dill's website today, and am very tempted to order seed. A couple of years ago I ordered Atlantic Giant seed from a general source, which I can't recall. Anyway I did some reading on how to grow a big one, but followed very little of it(and I mean little). I wanted to see how big they would get pretty much on their own(I did thin one fruit to a vine). I didn't weigh them, but the largest of the two I grew was probably 50 to 70 pounds.
If I do grow them this year, I would try to follow more of the steps, but would skimp on soil fertilization(My soil seems pretty fertile in general), and probably in a few other areas.
I would like to hear any or all experiences you've had with growing Atlantic Giant Pumpkins(the size they got to be, did you follow growing recommendations to a T, did you cut corners, etc.)
My goals are similar to Wayne's, mentioned in his post. I'd like a large one(hopefully over 300 lbs.) to give the nephews and neices(and me!) enjoyment in watching it grow.
