Growing an Atlantic Giant in the back yard
I planted an Atlantic Giant in my back yard this spring. The plant has gotten quite large (about 800 square feet). I am a novice so I didn't really know what to expect. I finally have a pumpkin that seems to be growing rapidly. I would guess that it is about 10" long with a diameter of about 7". it is getting noticeably bigger every day. I know I'm not going to set any records but is it still possible to get a 2-400 pound pumpkin. At this stage of development is there anything more I can do to increase my chances. I have been watering every 2 out of 3 days. we've had very little rain here the last couple of weeks. What kind of fertalizer can I use. I live on a city block so I can't use anything to smelly. I would appreciate any suggestions. I also have what I think is a "Big Max". I would guess that weighs about 80 pounds.
