Ah, to be sure to be sure.

Yes, it's firmly stuck at 97 inches. :ohmy: :nowink:
Cheese makes everything better.

Just to say that, after a shaky shart, they are so up and runnnnning!!!!!!! :lol:.  I went this afternoon to water everything, including the pumpkin, and went to inspect it, and found that I've got another, even bigger one, hiding amongst the courgettes (I planted the pumkins amoungst them to hide them - its like hiding a tree in a forest :D

I'm so excited. :D

I've tried putting photos on, but it doesn't seem to work :(

If both of them do grow, I hope to donate them to the local children's hospitals - Booth Hall and Pendlebury

As I said previously, NASA have promised to send the space station overhead to measure it.  All I have to do is ask. :)

Well I can safely say I'm out of the competition! My largest pumpkin shows some hints of changing from green to orange and I think it has stopped growing...with a waistline of a mere 34 inches! :lol:

Saw on GW that their monster pumpkin plants took up the space of half a tennis court each...I really don't have the space for that in my garden! ::)

That's the problem with you amateur growers.  I need NASA to measure as they correct for the gravitational field that mine produce due to their enormous size.  By the way, I'm still talking about pumpkins here. 8)

Reliably informed that mine is now 63 inches circumfrance.

Not quite 90 inches like Ice.
Top tip for camping....don't go.

there we have the problem ice ,apparently the magnetic field that your pumpkin is putting out is effecting the gravitational pull of the poles and without the dylytheim chrystals the space station cant settle on my pumpkin long enough to calibrate a true reading ,its hovering somewhere between 99" and 25 ft so not accurate enough  but when the space time continuant appears will try again

At least it has neither made nor disappeared into a back hole!  :)

Can we join too?
We're actually growing a pumpkin to enter into the local village competition, but we'll be digging it up early as the show is on the 11th Sept.
Can we enter this one as a sideline?
My son (who is in charge of most pumpkin preening) tells me that the girth is about 65" so far. NASA tell me they're not that bothered as the're getting calls from some bloke with a pumpkin twice the size...

33"(86cm) but should Ice or philskin create a black hole into which all the other pumpkins get sucked, it could still be the winner :tongue2:
