1220 Johnson Giant Pumpkin Seed

I germinated a couple of the 1220 Johnson seeds this week.  The one pictured here is a very nice looking plant.  I also have a 695 Johnson germinated but that seed hasn't popped through the ground yet.  I tried to germinate six of the 119 Johnson seeds (this is the 1421 crossed with the world record 1725) but non of those seeds germinated.  Very disappointed.  I guess the pumpkins were just too young.  I'm going to try a few more but it doesn't look like those will be viable.

I was out at the patch today watering the rye grass and noticed that almost all of the 1200 pounds of pumpkin that I tilled into that patch there is nearly no signs of now.  The biology in the patch has nearly eaten it all up in just two weeks.  Pretty amazing.
