    Default Anybody ever injected a pumpkin with milk to get it to grow bigger?

    My neighbor was just telling me about using milk to grow pumpkins bigger. I googled it and it looked very interesting. Has anyone tried this? Does it work?

    I have never heard of doing this. I'd love to hear if anyone has tried it!

    The guy down the road didn't "inject" his pumpkins but he gut one of the vines and would keep the vine in a bowl he filled with milk. He would use this on the one or two pumpkins he'd raise for the fair.

    I had never heard of that but I am game to give it a shot . I will have DH inject a couple of vines with millk and we will see if they are any different than those without the milk. It sounds like a fun experiment . If it works~Look out county fair, here I come .
