I'd definitely like to give this a go, hopefully some competition will encourage my pumpkins to get larger than the golf ball sized efforts of previous years.

Also, what varieties are people growing. I picked up some Atlantic Giant seeds and am hoping that they live up to their name.

count me in (noticed pumpkin plants in the GC today - came as a bit of a surprise)  Isn't it way too early?

Count me in please - though it will be the kiddos growing the pumpkins!   :D  I thought it would be encouraging for them to compete against each other to see who could grow the biggest pumpkin - so hopefully one of theirs will win!

Get posting then Simon. 

You'll need at least 50 posts before entering the competition.  But I'm guessing you manage that LONG before the pumpkin has grown  :lol:
