All my squashes and pumpkins appear to be one large tangle at the moment , so I may have to wait until the foliage dies down before I can find a pumpkin!!  Perhaps if my arm myself with a camera and a machete I can get a pic!!

33"(86cm) but should Ice or philskin create a black hole into which all the other pumpkins get sucked, it could still be the winner :tongue2:
I'm working on it. ;)

  im working on a parallel universe were slugs and snails or weeds don't exist and all veg is tasty and healthy
If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Pleased to report that after a brief visit to the office, the 'winner' is about 70 inches and looking ok.

Plus...I couldn't lift it which is a good sign......and yes....before you all jump on the joke wagon...I'm not that weak.  :lol:
