We met up with a man on Craigslist whose religion is growing gigantic pumpkins. When I say religion I mean religion. One just doesn't ordinarily drive 1-1/2 hours just to get the right kind of manure....
These little tents are really miniature greenhouses.

The original mini-greenhouses we a little more fancy than the little tents that were easier to make.

These little babies were planted from seed on April 21st. This picture is May 15th

These buckets had yeast, water and corn. The idea is that this produce carbon dioxide under the tents and kept the baby plants warm on warmer weather.



The girls

This picture was about May 21st.

The man also brought over watermelon plants that are suppose to produce giant watermelons that don't taste good.

I took this one today, May 29th.

This leaf is about 14 or 15 inches wide. Once these plants produce pumpkins the story is that they grow about 30-40 pounds a day. That's like growing the size of Bilbo!
