Giant Pumpkin Growing Lore
This may sound stupid but I've never grown giant pumpkins before and I have to ask the more experienced. I have a friend at work who tells me that 1000 lb pumpkins are really a sham, not growing expertise. What the grower does to get a pumpkim that large is to drill a hole in the stem and all season long, fill the pumpkin with water. The pumpkin absorbs it and increases the growth artificially, this way the pumpkin grows ridiculously large. I never heard of such a thing. Any of you experts have any input to this? I find it hard to believe.
Thanks for your responses in advance.
