If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Somewhere on Ice's allotment there's a bit of tape measure that runs from 9 inches to 45 inches...

Ah well I'm not in with any chance anyway...  my prize pumpkin is never going to be a giant, it's only a medium variety.  But in my eyes it's lovely !!

Anyway....back to the competition.

Here's recent photos of mine and the reserve.

I believe that works out as 60 inches.

Well this is my not-prize-winning pumpkin.  It's "Connecticut Field" which is not a big variety.  It's doing well though and there are a couple of smaller ones too.

My Crown Prince are doing brilliantly and are almost as big!!

Very quick update on the pumps! Sorry took the pictures in a rush, pumpkins are roughly that length across, they are more wide than tall, bit like myself!  :tongue2:
