I'm in... I've never managed to grow a pumpkin yet so I need I don't think I'm a threat to anyone  ::)
Snappy 

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

I was so optimistic about last years competition... was my first year with an allotment and basically my first year growing anything... Managed a nice perfect halloween sized pumpkin but nothing larger... Dont think i fed it enough though!

Put me down for this years competition please.. will have to try again :)

Add me to the list please.

(Forgot to say, when I carved last years it broke the knife in two - may not be able to grow the biggest, but probably the toughest!)
