					Class FP Giant Pumpkins of the Compost Pile
“A GREAT PUMPKIN GROWING CONTEST”
Prizes:           1st: W.J. Webb Cash Award for the heaviest pumpkin
                  2nd: Canadian Tire Award for the 2nd heaviest pumpkin
                  3rd: Boston Pizza - Arthur Street Award for 3rd heaviest pumpkin
Rules:
1. Use only compost to prepare your soil(no chemical fertilizers/supplements allowed).
2. No force feeding of nutrients through the vines.
3. The pumpkin must be grown outdoors although the seeds can be germinated inside and transplanted outside in the
   early spring.

HINTS TO GROW A GIANT
Planting and Space Requirements: Growing space in the garden is important. Each plant needs a lot of space for vine
growth. Pumpkins prefer long hours of sunlight so avoid shaded areas.
Hint: Tina Parker, a long-time resident of Gillies, as well as a teacher/mentor to many, suggests: “Grow your pumpkins
in a bed made in an old tire. The black tire will absorb the heat from the sun and keep the pumpkin bed warm.” Not to
mention the fact that it will discourage weeds from growing amongst your pumpkins.
Irrigation: Pumpkins are shallow rooted, so water slowly with at least one inch of water per week if rainfall is not
adequate.More water may be required during hot, windy summer days. Water during morning or early afternoon hours so
foliage dries by evening.
Compost: Providing adequate nutrients throughout the growing season will ensure healthy, vigorous vines, not to mention
large pumpkins. The addition of organic matter (manure, etc.) to the garden is important to establish good soil. Pumpkins
are heavy feeders! Provide lots of compost.
Pollinate Flowers:

well, too.
Make a Choice: Start with only four to six pumpkins per plant. Once pumpkins reach volleyball size, trim back to one
pumpkin. Why? -- The more you reduce the competition for nutrients, the greater your success rate will be for achieving a
giant sized pumpkin.
Not large enough for a Giant Pumpkin? Not a problem! Check the Hymers Fair Book Class F and Class FS for other
categories that your pumpkin could go into! After all... it’s the fun of growing a bigger-than-usual pumpkin without the use
of chemicals, that counts.
