Another weekend gone and 2 more pumpkin events I managed to make my way to. This post is all about the Taupo Market giant pumpkin competition.
I was lucky enough to head on down to Gisborne to the Bushmere Arms Giant Pumpkin Festival for 2017.
The wrap up of the 2017 great pumpkin carnival.
Last Friday I went and checked out the Tatuanui School Harvest Festival. Find out how it all went.
I helped judge and present some awards at the 2017 Te Kowhai School harvest festival.
I went and checked out what was happening at current NZ record holder Tim’s Patch.
An update on how the plants are looking around these parts.
World record holder Mathias Willemijns is doing a live Facebook Q&A very soon, all the details HERE.
First post for 2017 with a check in of my plant.
A bit of an update before Christmas on what has kept me busy the last couple of weeks and how the plant is going.
The seed auctions have just started. Find out what they are all about and what you need to know if you are after the best seeds.
An update on the plant now that I am back from Christchurch, time for some pea straw and some added fertiliser to the patch.
I have a good looking seedling now, so I have transplanted it outside and I have now come up with a nickname for the other seedling.
My irrigation is all set up now, find out what didn’t work. And an update on the seedlings.
The Harris 561 seeds are growing well, I started some Harris 1740.5 seeds, and one of the other ones decided to wake up.
My initial 3 seeds didn’t want to germinate for some reason, so I started some Harris 561 and they germinated within 36hrs.
