I can't see me winning a size prize for a pumpkin, its my first go at growing them and I'm a lot further north than most of you, but I have got one fruit so far, about the size of a golfball yesterday when I found it. :)

Better than me argyllie, I'ev two plants on the compost heap with very little growth and still not flowers out.  Slug food anyone?   ::)
