I asked the Zamboni driver at my local ice rink to pop over and remove all the dust from my mumber three pumpkin's backup reserve.  :closedeyes:

Is it just Ice and myself that's managing to anything?

Lots of names on that list or , is it a case of 'keeping one's powder dry'?

I have pumpkins!

I was about to give up and dig up the plants but I counted 3 pumpkins yesterday - at last.  They are enormous - at least 3 inches across  :blink:

Can I enter my squash instead, the Crown Prince are getting really big now!  I know what our winter diet is going to be.  Courgette Soup and roasted squash...



Lotty holder since Aug 09... I've FINALLY finished clearing it! On with the p.lanting  ....

I am new to this growing lark, and planted a "Jack o'Lantern" pumpkin, which is probably not going to beat anybody ::).
Here it is

it is about 6 inch in diameter.

I've got a pumpkin too - I don't want to measure it, in case I'm tempting fate!  ::) It did nearly succumb to the chickens yesterday, so they are now banned from free ranging!!  :nowink:
