(Howard Dill and Dill 892 2006)
Howard Dill's 2008 Premium Atlantic Giant Seeds!

Good evening, Growers!

It always helps to start with excellent seeds. If you've ever wondered how to get 'pedigreed' seeds from 1,000+ pound pumpkins, read on.

Howard Dill's 2008 Premium Seed list and order form are available now at It's mail order only, and they are in Canada, so the sooner you place your order, the better.

I had a great conversation with Danny Dill when I was placed my order for this season's supply of Atlantic Giant seeds for the giant pumpkin growing workshops and my own efforts. They have been great sponsors of Pumpkinmania since the earliest years. (Danny mentioned a couple of particularly intriguing seeds that are highlighted on this year's list... You'll see them!)

Take care and good luck!

Good evening, Growers!
I've been a member of the The Pacific Giant Vegetable Growers for a couple of years and it's been a wonderful experience. There are a number of very succesful veteran growers in the organization and they are very serious about having fun growing giant vegetables, particularly pumpkins.

Good luck!
