Social networks have allowed giant pumpkin growers to share what they are up to in their patch, answer questions and help spread the giant pumpkin word in a faster, quicker and easier way then ever before.
For me Instagram is my network of choice, sure it’s owned by our robot overlord Mark Zuckeberg, but for now it is one of the better options out there IMO.
I need to up my Instagram game after checking out these accounts. These accounts I always find have interesting content.
These were the top 7 that sprung to mind, I do follow a whole bunch of other growers around the world, if you have a must have Instagram account I should follow, please let me know in the comments.
