Growing Giant Pumpkins in A Giant Container at Yamagami's!

Good afternoon, Growers!

I received a copy of the July 3, 2008 newsletter from Carolyn Villa-Scott of Yamagami's in Cupertino. On page 6 of 7 of the newsletter, there are pictures of their vines in a roughly 4' x 4' x 4' container, and an account of what they did to successfully combat a recent aphid attack. The link to their newsletter is: Scroll down to the title "Pumpkinmania Update".

If you've ever wondered if a giant pumpkin can be grown in a container, this is your opportunity to have some questions answered.

The competition in the Masters & Institutional Division is beginning to heat up!
