Hey all!

Just thought i'd post my very first effort. I'm quite proud as this is my first allotment year and I thought I had planted courgettes!  :tongue2:

The plant was riddled with mildew so I bought the pumpkin indoors today to be sure.
The circumference is 105cm, weight unknown atm, need some bathroom scales to borrow!

You just need a set of wheels for that one but watch the mid-night chimes  ;)

I've just had a fantastic holiday in the US; got back on Sunday :D, and went to the allotment when I found that some moron had smashed my two pumpkins to bits - before I left, my biggest pumpkin measured 33" in diameter.  Really gutted :(
