I love growing huge vegetables, just for the "wow" factor pretty much. Anyone else? I've grown 3 pound tomatos, 140 pound watermelons, and I even held the state record for a cucumber for about two years, (With a variety not usually considered "giant" no less! Burpee's burpless)
Unfortunately a move to Alabama put in a high clay soil area, so the cucurbits are a bit tough to grow well here. Anyway, just thought I'd toss this out there.
