Yeah, I'd read that earlier on in the thread and appreciated I was unlikely to win, but I've always been an optimist...

They don't grow huge, but crop well. This is what we got off 3 plants last year:

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

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

Good grief.  OK, I'll consider that my own personal challenge. ???  It just so happens I have 3 plants settling in nicely...

My heaven's DD, that is impressive!!!

Perhaps you should expand your title to "Pea AND Pumpkin God".

For a little inspiration and an amazing sight I would recommend a visit to Slindon in West Sussex - there's a pumpkin farm - an amazing place  ;)

Not the largest but an interesting range and sight: Pumpkin Festival

checked my pumpkins this evening and very very happy to see a tiny little pumpkin growing on 1 of the 2 neon f1 i have planted.. They are in (far too small) pots in the garden at the minute but will hopefully get moved to the allotment in the next few weeks when the early potatos are all up. Im hoping to at least get a decent one for a halloween lantern!

My 2 big max plants (for the competition  :tongue2:) are doing ok but no signs of any fruit. 1 is still small on the bedroom windowsill and the other has massive leaves and is in a container full of muck. Its doing really well but has real issues standing up and seems to wilt in the sun even though it has damp manure and fall over breaking leaves in the wind.. ah well :)
