We hang a pumpkin up and cut a hole out the bottom so they can get their heads into it


they hollow their own ones out!


withint he next few days the skin will also dissapear and all will be lift hanging is the stalk!

Gained an allotment on the 19th June 08, 135ft by 40ft! eekk. Finally after 4 years it is looking like an allotment and not a jungle

We have 5 lovely hens in the garden, fish, 2 dogs and 2 canaries

i have been feeding pumpkin as it is for a while but today turned it into a puree with the seeds and some egg shell. my 10 week old chicks loved it. bigger girls not so keen but i have heard the seeds are a natural wormer and thought the extra calcium would do them good
