'course you need rules!!!  ....calm down, you've retired now  ::)

How about:

you must grow it yourself - not buy it.....obviously, goes without saying
it must be a pumpkin not something else in costume...... ditto above

How might you decide who wins? By weight or by girth?
You could have two sections and choose which to enter your mammoth growths into later!   so largest as in origional thread..(measure) or weigh devisions proof in a photo ?
 

 sorted :lol: :lol:

The only rule is the winner is the winner. 

We can't weigh them so it will have to be girth with a photo of the tape measure around it.

Aunty will know if you've cheated  ;)

I'm growing them this year on my first attempt (4 are up and growing in the greenhouse, and I'll put them in next week), yea so I'll join in the fun :D.  I've bought Mammoth pumpkin - supposed to grow to 70lb, but lets see shall we?  I'm not fussy on pumpkins, but if it does grow that big, I'll be donating it to the Childrens Hospital in Pendlebury in Salford :D for Halloween :blush:

So... who's a clever Aunty?

Can the whole of this thread be magically transferred over to the competitions section??

More people might notice it there...or do we have to wait for the photo competition to finish first?  :unsure:

Just an interfering thought!  :lol:

Could you add me too please? I've only ever grown them once and I did manage to get a Halloween sized one. The plant itself decided to go for a wander all round the allotment site so if there's ever a competition for longest plant I reckon I'd be onto a winner  :lol:.
