Count me in (Thanks to the wonderful lacewing who so kindly sent me some seeds as my small sugar variety isn't going to win any size competitions)
 :D

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.

I'm growing Jack O' Lantern and Atlantic Giant. The AG needed to be started off on wet kitchen paper in a tub, a bit like sweetcorn chitting. They wouldn't start just in a pot in a propagator.

I'll give it a go - not grown pumpkins before but am trying 'Connecticut Field' - AKA Jack O'Lantern!

BarrowBoy, you'll need to get posting as you need to be a full forum member with at least 50 posts before you can enter. :D
