This site is all about growing giant veggies. I started growing giants in 1996 that was also the same year the first 1000 lb. giant pumpkin was grown. This has been my passion ever since. I love the fun & excitement of growing. It's like Christmas for a child, the anticipation & suspense of what you will get at seasons end and the joy of watching others see what you have grown.I want to share my knowledge & fun with others as they to can have fun in the sun with their friends & family. Please join my grandchildren & I on our fun how to grow veggie site.
I started growing giants in 1996 with my Uncle Jud who is now 89 years old.He brought me a newsletter offering 50 grand for the 1st 1000 lber to be weighed in. Well my first year I grew a 520 if my memory serves me right. The record was broke that year the 1061 by Paula & Nathan Zehr.I was hooked & grew some nice 700 & 800 lbers the next few years taking them to Pt Elgin Canada along with my watermelons at around 180 lbs.Then in 2002 I won the State title in Michigan with a 848 just 36 lbs shy of the State record .
In 2011 I grew 3 watermelons in the screenhouse 260 lbs 228 & a 219 with a 192 grew outside in the weeds.My 260 was 3rd in the world behind my new found friends Chris Kent & Todd Dawson 282lb 2011 world champion.
I grew a 1947lb Orange Beast a new Michigan state record in 2014 .I also grew a 138.5 long gourd which still remains a state record & was a U.S. record that season. The following season I grew 1734 in 2015 Dublin champion winning 5 grand .in 2016 I grew a 1704 that was Orange & the 1474 Trumpkin the Pumpkin.My current Michigan State record at 2043.5 lbs as shown in picture above & won & 7 grand at Operation Pumpkin in 2017 in Hamilton Ohio.I had to come out of the closet as a ORANGE lover.
