I've got quite a large pumpkin growing that we have to step over now to get down the garden path but it's green and not yellow like I expect a pumpkin to be!  

mine are green too

 :)I was wondering Can I enter?

I have a giant pumpkin-my first time growing,I only have 3 pumpkins on two plants,all the others seem to rot away anyone know what is the reason for this?

I have taken two pictures over the weekend,this on is reasonable for an Atlantic giant,16" x" x !6" and approx 46" circumference.

I have no idea how large these are supposed to grow :ohmy:

I managed to get a tape around the middle of mine.  Not too shabby for my first ever pumpkin and with no gather at the back of the tape. :tongue2:

If I take the tape and measure the pumpkin over the largest area it is actually 56" Philskin  ;)though if i place it just as ice has then it is a mere 52" :)

WOW they look really good, my pumpkins are nothing like that but still proud of our first attempt, the biggest is about the size of my son's head(5 years old). Not that childrens heads are the best measure but it will do for now  :tongue2:
