Don Langevin has written four books on giant pumpkins that have changed the landscape of competitive growing. Since his first book in 1993, the world record has been broken thirteen times, and his second book in 1998 set off a 10 year span that saw the world record broken every year. How-to-Grow World Class Giant Pumpkins The All-Organic Way offers an approach to growing that will change competitive vegetable growing all over the world. This book covers everything from soil preparation to seed starting, from feeding and watering to choosing the right fruit, from pest control to measuring for estimated weight, from competing to all the things that giant pumpkin growers do with their pumpkins all written with reverence to the Soil Food Web. Nothing is left out. As Langevin says, If you can grow tomatoes, you can grow giant pumpkins. Ron Wallace, the first gardener to grow a pumpkin over 1500 pounds in 2006 says, Don s books will put you on a level playing field with the best giant pumpkin growers in the world. Many credit Langevin for their start and success in competitive gardening. When Langevin s first book came out in September of 1993, the world record was 827 pounds. Now it is 1,689 pounds, and many are forecasting a 2,000 pound pumpkin in upcoming years. When that happens, this book will be given much credit for leading the way to this monumental feat. --Publisher
