It’s that time of year! Have you ever wanted to grow a giant pumpkin? Now is your chance. I’d like to invite you to join me in growing the biggest/heaviest pumpkin possible this summer. I have I have Atlantic Giant Pumpkin Seeds to share from last years pumpkins. Available are seeds from a nice orange 1302 lb pumpkin weighed at Damariscotta Weighoff, and an aesthetically challenged 961 lb pumpkin weighed at Cumberland Fair.
I also have a few seeds left from our 1400 lb pumpkin weighed in 2014
If you you’re interested in growing, and would like seeds, send me a self addressed 6″X 9″ “bubble or padded” envelope. Usually 5 or 6 stamps will do. My address is.
