Leonard,
 
Dill's Atlantic Giant may be the one to go with. These look like they were grown in atomic power plants or something:  http://www.howarddill.com/. You should call them for availablity for the 2002 growing season ( ain't no more 2001)

A regular piece in the old Organic Gardener ( before the OG/Organic Style schism) were pumpkins grown on the sites of  garden soil that were under compost heaps that had been moved to another part of the garden.
 
Happy pumpkin!

Subject: [cg] Pumpkin Patch

We are planning to plant a pumpkin patch next spring to provide pumpkins to area children for a Halloween pumpkin carving/painting party.  Does anyone have a suggestion for a "best" variety pumpkin for this project?  What secrets are there for growing the huge pumpkins for contests?  Any hints from those who have done this kind of thing before?  We are in central Wisconsin.
