Hey there guys, is it too late to join in?  ::)

I've got a atlantic giant in a large growbag and is pretty small yet, experimenting to see how big it can get and growing in a grow bag becuase I haven't much ground soil!

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!

A bicycle pump might be the answer  ;)

Giant Atlantic jobs, huh ..... reminds me of a crazy eco-terrorism idea I had a few years back, whereby I'd jaunt out on midnight crusades (in ninja-esque attire), with a sack of giant pumpkin seeds - and like, target key buildings with immense numbers of these babies ..... Imagine the chaos and horror this would cause when they sprouted.  :wacko:

one positive thing has come to life so far ,the local vicar called at the house on friday looking to see what I was entering in the the show because he is interested in veg and gardening , well we went for a wander around the garden and he liked what he saw and spotted the pumpkin well he was very impressed and I told him about the competition on here ,and I  jokingly said could we use it to raise money for the church he asked when it would be fully grown and I admitted that I didn't have a clue . We talked and came to a decision that on halloween we would weigh it at the village party and people could guess the weight at 50p a time, money will be donated to good cause
If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

That sounds great - what a smashing idea!  ;)

You could also point the gardeners and chicken keepers in the direction of the AVG web-site  :)

At the moment the closing date is Septober. :D  It might be a good idea to set a date though.  Blackcap1000 is organising things so wait until we get a reply from him. :)

Are we having a "smallest pumpkin" competition too?  I now have 3 and the biggest is all of 4 inches across.... they are being dwarfed by my Crown Prince squash. :happy:

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

An interesting idea that.... I'll pop over the sunflower growing competition and have a go at suggesting the shortest... I might be in with a chance  ;)
