I seem to be spending a lot of time here in the garden section, so I thought I would introduce myself. I am Monty, of West Virginia. I have been gardening for over 20 years and grow everything from asparagus to zucchini. I have grown pumpkins to 1100 pounds and cabages to over 25 pounds. I regularly grow tomatoes to over 2 pounds and onions 12 inches in circumference.

I'm not bragging here (it does sound like it, I admit), but rather letting folks know that I do know what I'm doing when it comes to the garden. I used to be a mentor on another gardening site, but decided it was time to move on. MTF has everything I need all in one package. So feel free to ask questions of me. If I don't know the answer, I won't BS you. I'll tell you straight up that I don't know. Over the next few days I will try to get some pics up of what I have grown so you know I'm not blowing smoke.

I like it here and I want to help out in any way I can.

Before anyone asks, here is a pic of one of many big pumpkins I have grown...seems people are amazed by these:

Welcome, and thanks for posting. While we like pictures a lot, probably many of us like pumpkin pie better, and there's probably enough there for all of us!

Enjoy your visits. Maybe some recipes for the fruits of your labor?

I am curious what growing a pumpkin like that does to the soil. Two pound tomatoes, must suck a lot of N2 out.
