Bill’s Big Pumpkins, Seeds from Atlantic Giants
written by Bill Foss

Hello,

If you would like to ask me any questions or compare yours with mine, please contact me (by contacting my son Ryan who run's this website). I will be planting all of these seeds myself.  I really like to know how yours are doing, photos are great.

Here's details and images about seeds that were included in the past year's Seed Packages. (Note, first number is weight, then name of the grower, often followed by year.)
