I tried growing Atlantic Giant last year. The biggest I got was the size of a grapefruit. I think it probably needs to be in a polytunnel to really produce something big.

I've grown reasonable AG's outside.

But not this year.  :(
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

That gives me hope for next year's heatwave try DD :D. We'd have been ok with even a grapefruit SimonW, since it was a first time effort for fun.  The plant eventually took off but the sequence of male/ female flowers was never in sync.

It wasn't a winner size wise, but got the "prettiest" last year, (due more to the display around it, I suspect).

I think with a bit more TLC it would have got bigger, but if I remember correctly, the biggest was also grown outside.

Anyway, just to prove you can get something off an AG outside, this was it:

Mine is the size of a satsuma.

Overall I've had a disappointing year in the garden

Here's my squash harvest for 2012 none of them big enough to be worth measuring though  :(



Don't forget to measure and photo yours by the end of the month  :)
