This thought came to me the other day, and it is a universal piece of advice that works for everyone, no matter their circumstances.

The number 1 thing a giant pumpkin grower can do is:

Be curious.

It works for any grower, at any level, with any budget, any location.

Be curious

Being curious allows you to experiment and learn new things.

I think people sometimes lose the ability to be curious. Ever talk to a small child, they are curious about everything.

Thinking like this when growing a giant pumpkin will benefit you.

Lets be clear, it might not benefit your giant pumpkin. But there is only one way to find out, be curious and try new things.

People get scared of trying new things, and want answers to problems.

Not every problem has a black and white answer. There is always advice out there, best practices and ideas.

But what if we are all missing out on something great? We find these things out by someone being curious and trying something new. Not everything will work out, but that’s OK, you will now know the answer.

So be curious.

It’s great skill to have, to always wonder how things work, why things are done a certain way and if there is another approach to a problem, giant pumpkin related or not.
