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 and 2000 pounds in 2009 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 over 2700 pounds!

This book, about organic gardening and giant pumpkins, is going to be the most influential, talked about, Cucurbit book in years. It is so full of dazzling, yet common sense practical insights and so engaging that once I started reading it I could not put it down. --Steve Connolly - grower of the largest pumpkin in the word in 2008 at 1568 pounds
