 :( I have a problem,the only scales I have go up to 35kg,I just know my kin weighs more than this,any ideas please,I have a friend coming tomorrow to help us lift it from the bed and into the shed-he could not lift it on his own  :ohmy:

Cannot use the bathroom scales-they'd be lost under it,I doubt if my gp would let us in with it? nor the chemist.... :unsure:

missie, i've borrowed some digital bathroom scales, apparently most off them store the last weight so you can lift pumpkin off and see the weight, hope this helps

I have indeed borrowed some digital scales and the result is 72KG or 159.2Lbs and last measurement is a mere 74.5",now I know this shall not win,(especially against sutty'1s!;-)..thanks for the scales idea!),however,this is my very first attempt to growing kins so I do not think I have done too badly?
