No where near as good as the last pic but here are my 2 (of my 3) girls :)

The little one and another slightly bigger (with a teeny pumpkin showing!) will be planted at the allotment tomorrow.. hoping to get a few for halloween with that one!

The larger is a big max.. im not going to have room for it at the allotment for another couple of weeks at least  :blink: Not sure how im going to get it there as it should be a bit bigger by then! May see if i can borrow the neighbours van for half an hour! ;)



EDIT *** In case your wondering thats a small yellow plastic ball in the pic and not a pumpkin!! I wish! No fruit showing on there yet but cant even see the flowers due to the leaves!! ***

look good and healthy ,try to wrap them in cling film just to support them for the move and compress them a little
If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Thankyou I will try that!

Wondering now if i should take the big one there while i can still (probably) get it in the car.. I like having it here though so I can keep an eye on it lol :)

By the way, I'm only pulling Philskin's leg as his pumpkin is bigger than mine. :lol:  But, it is well to remember the story of the hare and the tortoise. 8)
Cheese makes everything better.

Hey all! One of mine has a fruit on it the size of a small hand but is touching the soil; is it best to put something underneath it- worried about pests and it rotting if the soil is wet?

Who said anything about a year's supply of Guinness  :ohmy:

Now if I'd read about that a while back I would be entered, competing and keeping secrets (where it's planted, what it's fed on, how fast it's growing....) and aiming to win!



A year's supply of my fourth favouritest drink (after coffee, strong tea and single malt).

That's nearly 8 pints of Guinness by my reckoning!!  :blink:
Never keep your wish-bone where your back-bone ought to be.
