A giant size heirloom pumpkin and summer squash plant grew from an old seed.? I grew them last year so the seed must have got mixed in to the soil. ? The plants are over five feet tall and still growing!
The soil at Sandy Acre Pines is all sand… hence the name.
No fertilizer was added to this plant except for a few goat droppings.
What started as just a pumpkin plant quickly grew into a world record-setting summer squash and pumpkin plant.? Say that ten times fast…
The plant has produced several basketball size summer squash and a bunch of small pumpkins so far.? The squash plant was winning early on but now the pumpkin plant has clearly caught up.? Look at the size of the leaf up against my hand.
There was one catch to the mysterious plant growing here.? Under the giant size plant is a pile of worm castings
that I was using in the garden.? Clearly it’s the best kept secret to growing plants without chemicals.
There’s a lot of debate as to what’s considered organic.? It seems anything can be listed as organic nowadays.
These plants grew with NO pesticide, weed killer, or fertilizer.? I didn’t water them…? Heck, I didn’t even plant them!
I’d consider that organic!
