Only a few weeks to go until seed starting time! I am really excited about a seed I recently acquired! This seed is from the pumpkin that was a huge reason why I started growing giants. In the fall of 2014, when I was first thinking about trying to grow a giant pumpkin, I was hesitant because everything I was seeing about them was they were mostly big, mishapen blobs that were every color but orange. Then, I searched what the biggest pumpkin grown in Nebraska was & coincidentally, found an article about Darren Christensen's pumpkin, "Morpheus", that he had just broken the state record with. The 1399lb pumpkin was what I dreamed of growing and it helped convince me to try growing a giant! After many failed attempts of finding a seed from that beauty, I finally got my hands on one & I can't wait to grow it!
