Anybody started yet? Yesterday I tilled my garden and got it ready for planting. I live in south Georgia so risk of frost was gone a month ago. I plan on getting some seeds this week to go along with the seeds I saved from carving last year and plant Saturday. This is my second year attempting to grow with last year not going too well. I had a couple of pumpkins reach the size of baseballs and softballs but ended up turning to mush seemingly overnight. Crossing my fingers this year for at least a couple of good carving pumpkins this year.

Glad to see many of you had a decent harvest. Between the powdery mildew and a persistent woodchuck I was only able to harvest a couple of small Jack O'lantern pumpkins. I trapped the woodchuck and took him a couple of miles away but it was too late. He took bites out of every pumpkin. Trying to salvage what I have but I'm not sure they'll make it.
