mine's about the size of a football and growing fast, only set about 3 weeks ago so hopefully it will get bigger before it gives up
You'll need some warm weather which i think judging by the long term forecast is 'no chance'.
Apart from today that is..bizarre.
Top tip for camping....don't go.

Mine was 58", but sadly it had turned to mush inside and has gone to pumpkin heaven, the green bin. :(
Cheese makes everything better.

Flowerpower Junior entered his pumpkin last Saturday in the local show and beat all the adults hands down for the second year in a row! Bless....
It weighed in at 173.8lbs (or 12 stone!)

Am still trying to find a piece of string long enough to go round. Will report back.

Meanwhile, I am giving this post a second go at loading a photo. (ARGH!!)

Never grown a pumpkin but for some reason I do still persevere with Gardener's World on Beeb2 and tonight, unless I wasn't paying proper attention, the only mention of vegetables was Toby's pumpkin which he said is due to feature in a a competition in a few weeks's time.

Should we let him join us?  :unsure:  :lol:

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
