Has nobody else managed to grow a large/pretty pumpkin this year?  :(

Well no pretty pumpkins here - here is my entrant for ugliest pumpkin which grew more wrinkly the more water I gave it!  It was a relief to see the one at Wisley looking almost as ugly as mine!  I just wish I was better at pumpkin carving to do it justice - it looked like Freddie Kreuger's face before carving!!  How's this for a complexion??!

 

It is a hundredweight variety but wasn't huge.  It weighed 2.2 Kg and measured about 63cm - so not huge but I was just thankful to have some pumpkins this year at all.  The children appreciated it, (and one of the Mars pumpkins I also grew) for their first Halloween.

 

(Honest, the children are happy!)



The Mars pumpkin measured 56.5cm but I forgot to weigh it before carving it!

I didnt register for the competition but here is the Mars which my little grandson sowed. It grew to 80 cm circumference and weighed 3.5 kg  - with the help of daylight craft lamp, ripe bananas and windowsill near a radiator we finally achieved full ripeness on Oct 31!  This was our most successful this year. Another Mars was much smaller  though a good shape. Mammoths didnt do well at all.

I've checked the thread pages and can only find angela's pumpkin, and one of my own, that are eligible for voting.

So I hereby declare angeladavies the winner of 'the prettiest pumpkin' with this lovely pic  :D
Congratulations!

Oh that's so cute Angela. I love hearing children's mispronunciations. Do I detect a new thread whilst chatting on the plot.
