The giant pumpkins and greenie squash germinated and are looking GOOOD! I planted the seeds on April 7. The first one up was the greenie on April 12, then the pumpkins followed by April 14. The cotyledon leaves (very first leaves to appear or baby leaves) are huge. My all star lineup so far is:
Giant Pumpkins: 1046 Grande 10, and another 895 Grande 08 (which became my New Mexico State Record for giant pumpkin last year)
Giant greenie squash: 903 Noel 07
They are in 4 inch peat pots on a plant heating mat in a light box and I just see the beginning of the first true leaf on the pumpkins and greenie. Looking good so far! Grow naguas, grow!
