Hi Mark,

Got your email today and seen you would like some personal best story’s. This is my new personal best of 650 on my third year. In previous years I had the hardest time finding the right balance of what to feed and led to nutrient deficiency’s . Not this year! I had the most green, stocky plant. In St.louis the weather was above 95 most of the summer with multiple days above 100, and I still managed to get 650 pounds! Marks Mixes were a huge help!




Weighed at the Republic Pumpkin Daze, in Republic MO. Took second

Thanks,


Zach Drozdz
