Pumpkin contest 2011
« on: March 22, 2011, 12:23 »
Hello all,

Unfortunately i haven't got time this year to run the heaviest pumpkin competition, so if there are any takers that would like to run it they are more than welcome to take it over :)

Best regards

Y.E.A.H

Ok........I'll do it :)

The winner will grow the biggest pumpkin, rather than the heaviest.
You will have to post pics of the final measurement and we'll also have a poll for your favourite pic at the end, for the pretty rather than large pumpkins :)

Obviously it has to be grown and not bought  , but it can be any variety you would like to grow.

Ends 31st October

let me know if you want to play  :nowink:

Playing so far:

Go on then! Mine might just be pretty and not big, but I'll have a go anyway.  :wub:

How do get the weights?
Is it done on trust?

Last year we did the biggest pumpkin, rather than the heaviest.
Post pics of the final measurement and we'll also have poll for favourite pic.

Obviously it has to be grown and not bought  ::), but it can be any variety you like to grow :)

How does that sound :)

I'm now kicking myself for having chosen Small Sugar as my pumpkin variety for the year  :(
Perhaps a vist to the garden centre for some more seeds is in order...
