97 Ritter 2016

This is the offspring of my 120 Ritter. It was an early sunflower that had almost no sun and was not watered enough. The seeds may appear small but this year I managed to grow a 6 foot sunflower plant before the squirrels took it down.

70.00 Ritter 2017

This plant was one of the strongest, at about 5 feet on the main vine it split yet somehow by the end of the season the plant had completely sealed up the split. The days got so windy and cold by September 4th to the point where the pumpkin stopped growing. This took 13th place at Nick's garden...

This is the largest field pumpkin I have seen other than the state record at 94.5 Pounds. This is from the same seed that grew the Colorado state record. I had to weigh this on my own scale, so the pumpkin was most likely heavier than what the scale showed.

This is $40 worth of genetics for just $2. This was grown for only 20 days with just 1 leaf. Had the wind been milder this would have been 50 pounds.

177.00 Ritter 2018

This pumpkin was a prize winning pumpkin at $50 for 10th place at Nicks. The genetics cost me over 25 dollars and are superior. A pumpkin from the same seed grew a 2034 pound pumpkin. It was grown on a secondary vine, so this would have been 500. Thanks for growing my seeds, Leif.
