I can get good odds on the fact that you won't!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I had to bring mine in a few weeks ago. I was quite happy with my first effort but forgot to measure or weigh it as I new it was no competition for some of the monsters I've seen posted on here. Hopefully better luck next year!

My biggest one weighs in at 10 3/4 LB and is 32" in circumference, all the others are 31" so at least I'm consistent!

It's against the law in Australia to fornicate with a kangaroo.................unless you are drunk!!!  Otherwise, it'd be disgusting :@

As we had a sharp frost forecast for last night i thought i'd better get them in and measure them, 7 in total sizes as follows:

121cm
124cm
125cm
131cm (2)
140cm and
154cm

very pleased with my first attempt.

If I have mastered the technology there should be a photo at the end of this, only 5 left neighbours having collected their promised fruit . The best one is extreme left.

My thought process is NOT illogical...It's just a form of intellect so amazing it has yet to be appreciated by mainstream society ;)
