What’s the SECRET to GIANT Plants?

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

If you look back a couple weeks in my blog, you will see a small pumpkin plant.  Here is that small plant a few weeks later!    This plant grows so fast, you can almost watch it grow.  My wife is starting to get afraid of the plant, as if it would run after her…haha…..na, maybe it would crawl after her, but run, I don’t think so! 😉

I like to refer to my pumpkin plant as “Pumpkinzilla”!  We’ve already got a dozen or so mini soccer ball sized pumpkins growing.  By next week I expect them to be beach ball size.

Keep in mind there is no trick photography here…no “Special” seeds (In fact this was just a volunteer plant that I let grow).   The most important thing to know is that I’m no great gardener.  In fact, my idea of a garden is to dig a hole, add  castings, ask my wife to water the  area every once in awhile, and walk away.  How lazy is that?

So…as the headline of  this blog says, “What’s the SECRET to GIANT Plants”? 

Nothing but WORMS and WORM CASTINGS!
