This is the 922 Mohr plant. As you can see on all my plants, the wind shredded the back leaves and I have applied too much nitrogen and burned them. I’m always learning and adjusting as I learn. There are many good growers out there that have perfected their techniques. I also think it depends on what area you live in and adjusting for that climate and the challenges you might face growing giant pumpkins.

The 1244 REA plant will hopefully produce a beautiful orange pumpkin. I am hoping to keep the pumpkin I pollinated today versus the one on June 30th.

My daughter plant the 1306 Mohr pumpkin last year and it was one tough plant. It seems to be a very aggressive grower. I pollinated one about 8 feet out on July 3rd, but I should have another one ready by the 10th of July that I will probably keep.

This is the 1213 REA. I did not get a chance to take very good care of this plant so it’s further behind. I’m sure it will catch up and I did pollinate a pumpkin on this plant July 3rd.

The last pumpkin in my patch is the 1365 Singleton 2011. The area is not the best place in my garden, but it has really started to take off.
