Those who stand tall have the furthest to fall  :(

It's shredded to pieces.  Something, (or someone), has torn it apart.

Luckily, I have three others down in the crypt. ;)

Tonight I will have land mines, an electric fence and overnight armed sentry duty.
Cheese makes everything better.

flitwickone. Did you see my previous comment about the variety you have chosen?

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Our luvverly MumofStig sent me some seeds - and yup, I did the; planting without writing label' first trick. So if mine are great then its all down to her (well some of it is anyway - the free slops from the pub will help)

Something I read yonks ago - slops (half a pint a day)  and manure and lots of water will get big pumpkins. Im guessing you need the big pumpkin seed first though  :lol:

Its cant hurt anyway
