The folks that amaze me are the ones that grow them like 600 lb pumpkins that take heavy equipment to load and semi's to take off to the fairs and them biggest pumpkin contests.

I know those that win usually can premium prices for the seed from those pumpkins, but I must be dense or totally missing something, because those pumpkins are feed and feed and pampered and feed and pampered some more. Those folks spend all their time and months and months just growing that one huge pumpkin.

If those pumpkins are feed so much extra fertilizers and nutrients and who knows what all, would the seed really produce such big pumpkins. ? I could see if it was crossed and breed to be bigger and seed saved and it crossed and breed until desired size and weight and flavor was reached . Than I could see paying the $8 and above for a seed of it.

But I just don't see how they getting it and they do just for a over feed, pampered one. Blinking Confused
