Giant Pumpkin Update – Potted up!

I potted up the Giant Pumpkin seedlings into large black pots. The wonderful boyfriend saved them for me from a large planting of Hostas that they put in on a huge landscape job they did last year.

I will keep these in the windowsill for a few days to get over any transplant shock they may have. Then they will be moved out to the greenhouse for a few days before going into the ground outside sometime around June 1st.

With all the squash and melons, I am trying to minimize the root disturbance they despise so much by potting them on a little early. It seems to be working out for me so far.
