Be on the safe side Ice - leave one as a back-up  ;)


Am I right that you are also taking part in the tallest sunflower competition too?
Thanks for that Learner, I was going to remove them all, phew. :nowink:

Tallest sunflower?  No, not me, wouldn't like to sweep the board of prizes. :lol:

I know how you feel.... It is so embarrassing going up time and time again to collect the prizes  :lol:

My school experience was a bit different. in the days of streaming:

At Junior school I started off in the B stream but was rapidly promoted to the P stream. The P, or so the parents were told, stood for progress of which I evidently made very little!  :blink:  :blush:

It was not until I arrived at the secondary mod that things began to improve when, after a bit of a nasty incident, I decked the schools biggest bully (more by accident than intention). From then on I was given a wide berth by the schools rough bunch and actually began to relax, learn and enjoy being there.

A change of gear and some good competition from my best mate got me from the bottom to the top. Thank heavens for the change to Comprehensive School or I would not have had the opportunity to tackle GCSEs and then A levels in the years I had left.  ;)

I can't see me winning a size prize for a pumpkin, its my first go at growing them and I'm a lot further north than most of you, but I have got one fruit so far, about the size of a golfball yesterday when I found it. :)

I've been hand polinating mine which seems to have helped and then removing the flower before it goes too mushy - no drop offs yet (I do only have 3 fruit so far but they all seem to be getting bigger!). Last year I only got one fruit (as all the others dropped off) and it didn't ripen in time.

Is there a prize for whose goes furthest across the garden?  We have two golf balls on ours but it's now half way across the lawn and we have to climb over it to get indoors!

Good heavens wtog  :blink:

Are they sunflowers in the background against the fence?  Not thinking of entering that competition too, were you  :lol:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
