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.

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.
