Giant Pumpkins to Grow in the Garden

This Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 4:30 pm in Children's Services we will plant giant pumpkin seeds that have been donated to the Garden Club. Our goal is for a pumpkin to exceed the world’s record of 1092 pounds! Come prepared to prepare the soil into a nutrient rich environment for these guys. We have ten seeds that first must be potted indoors. Each group will get one seed to nurture and love. When it is ready to plant we will have the garden ready for our new resident giants. These beautiful plants need lots of water and some shade. By Halloween we can start with one giant Jack-o-Lantern.
