    Giant pumpkin contest!!

    That's going to grow big pumpkins its starting to get the monster look. You got the space so let it go wild. I gave my boss those squash seeds you gave me, he has a 200kg plus monster on, I reckon it will go 350 plus ...If he doesn't split it from overwatering (pumping water straight from a creek 200 litres a day) I'll get some seeds back and send you some WB.

    60 days set the vine has pretty much given up. I had powdery mildew and I trimmed the vine too hard so limited the pumpkins potential. I think its around 250 to 270 kg. It just didn't go bang like they are supposed to in the last 15 days. My daughter who planted the seed and pollinated the flower in her throne.

    giant sunflower competition

    17th of December. Some stopped growing and headed. 2 are still growing well. One looks like it might hit 4 metres. I dunno how I am going to save seeds from the birds. Not bad for a fist go, next year I will build a trellis I can walk on and go hard I think, with foliar sprays etc. I want the Australian record...lol

    Grow the vine as big as you can, this one would have been much bigger had I let the vine go to its full potential.

    I had to google what a penetrator was lol. The only thing I add is molasses to my nutrient mixes, just from what I have read online not sure what it does but the results have been good so far.

    I found a product at Big W today for Orchids NPK of 25 8 10 for growing and another 15 8 25 for bloom. Keen to try these out as foliar sprays on the next pumpkin. Was just a powder product 500g packet 5g to 5 litres $7.50

    they will start coming in hit it with some blooming nutes as a foliar spray couple times a week Something higher in Potassium then nitrogen. I was looking at fertilisers today and I think that most things developed for Orchids would be gun for growing giant stuff. They are relatively cheap too.

    They love heat when does it warm up where you are? It looks very healthy.

    I currently don't have enough seeds to pass them around, but if I get these to germinate we can do one next year with the seeds I harvest. Pretty cool looking plants, there's a tonne massive south American varieties in the US that I would like to try. 25 foot corn...fark.

    New giant idea. Giant Corn or tall corn I think its a type of South American Maize. Just doing some research on it, not much online that I have found. Here's a pick of the seed.

    Starting to form ribs and getting orange, skins still soft and only a tiny little bit of netting appearing in the skin where the shade clothe has rubbed, I don't know how much more its got in it but maybe another fortnight of decent growth?

    Nice one WB I really like the look of the one on the right, those variegated patches seem to be a good thing when you see the really massive pumpkins. This one is still filling out here, I think it may go 300kg, I think it will rot underneath though as I did not put enough sand down its grown all funny looks like it will crush the stem. I will just keep watering the bugger and see what it ends up at. I dunno how I am going to weigh it. They are going to put it on display at the pub where I work so that pretty cool. Then as long as its not rotten I'm going to try and turn it into a boat for Australia day celebrations.
