It is way fun. Just gotta have some space to grow in. Park Seed has Atlantic Giants for a reasonable price.

Would just like to comment on how incredibly fast these things grow. I've been meaning to get pictures but every time I go to take one, something else is happening and I can't get progress shots :D

Yes they sure are fast! I'm sure if you sat there and watched them you'd be able to see them grow!

Should be fairly fast once those second leaves come out!

 

 

Little pumpkin is a little fatter and lower today, hopefully it takes, I may not get many shots at this before the weather turns bad.

I heard the BIG ones can gain up to 30 pounds (13kg) in 24 hours. Hopefully you get a good one!

I certainly believe that, my last pumpkin was putting on alot of weight before it stopped!

 

my little pumpkin is bigger again! BUT this might be the last photo of it that you see.  Its going to be 41 degrees tomorrow..105.8 fahrenheit.

That kind of temperature aborts baby pumpkins, burns leaves and kills off the new growth on the ends of the vines.

I've covered the ends of the main vines and I've covered the baby pumpkin and female flowers......but I'm worried this hot day is going to kill it all off.

It should be fine, just keep it covered and hope for the best. Pumpkins seem to be pretty hardy but I don't have much experience with Atlantic so I wouldn't know. Man you're making me jealous lol. 

 

Keeping it covered will make it grow bigger as well, the hotter and more intense light it gets the faster it will ripen and quit growing so keep it covered and spray some cool water on it. Congrats on the pumpkin!
