COMPOST’S GIANTS – The 21st Annual Great Pumpkin Growing Contest
Get ready to GROW!
Welcome to this great, but very friendly, competition!
As a participant in this year’s contest, you will join an enthusiastic and growing crowd of organics recyclers (compost AND anaerobic digestion professionals, that is) whose objective is to Grow ’em Big with Compost! The heaviest pumpkin at the time of weigh-in will be this year’s national champion of the pumpkin patch.
As the winner, you will receive bragging rights as well as $500 to donate to a horticultural initiative
In addition to these rules and regulations, your sign-up kit provides you with an excellent source of websites and tips to learn about the fine art of pumpkin growing. This year we will once again be providing seeds of “Dill’s Atlantic Giant” with our starter packages with seeds from pumpkins 1000 lbs +! Each of these packages has only two seeds, but your chances of growing impressive pumpkins will be very high…
