Really big watermelons and pumkins come mostly from genetics, but you can get pretty big ones by giving lots of sun, lots of water, and lots of room. Also depending on where you live you've gotta work with the season. Here we have an early frost so I've gotta start my patches at the begining of may to allow ripening time before the frost, other places can start in June.

Take and for a mound of rich soil or compost. Stick the seeds in, let 'em grow(sometimes over 30ft of vine)keep 'em good and watered, fertilize with miracle grow, and hope you have good seeds. You can always keep selecting for big pumpkins year after year by only planting the largest pumpkin's seeds. Although there's a brand of seeds that sell the seeds from prize winning pumkins watermelons and other veggies.

Watermelons love manure. Dig a really big hole and fill with manure. You'll need a huge growing area, as the vine grows you bury sections of it in the soil, this will cause more rooting and more feeding for nutrients and water. The vines get huge, thick and long. When they start to form, you thin the melons to one or two per vine. They can drink a shitload of water. Afterall that is what is inside!!! You need a really long growing season. The seed should be CAROLINA CROSS.

Thanks for the advice you guys..

The plants are Cinderalla Pumpkins; about 8 weeks old already. So they won't grow 'giant', only about 10" in diameter. In response to what y'all have said. though, I'm going to make the garden bigger (less grass to cut) and also till lots of compost & manure (store bought) into the new area. I'm jealous of Paul James and wanting to create some raised beds.

It's cool how the pumpkins put down roots as they grow. This is the garden's first year. It's had great educational/entertainment value. So far, no nutritional value though..
