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'm growing the same as you starling, bout the same size now aswell, although i've noticed bout 4 small football sized ones, and bout 4 tennis ball size ones...do i remove anymore if the set?

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:



The problems will come later Ice. Where will you find tape measures long enough!  :ohmy:

Must add a photo soon, I have 3 growing, the largest is about 10" across atm.  Is that par for the course at this stage?

It's against the law in Australia to fornicate with a kangaroo.................unless you are drunk!!!  Otherwise, it'd be disgusting :@

I have a couple growing - one larger one but don't think they will beat anyone's as they are only 'halloween' pumpkins and not a mammoth variety!
