Here it is!
I can’t even describe how excited I was when I discovered this growing under my hedge last week… I did a dance and jumped about a bit, then Penny started jumping about because she knew something exciting had happened. I sang a little song in the garden and Penny started whining.
I’ve tried to grow pumpkins every year and the best I’ve ever managed was a couple the size of golf balls which quickly rotted and fell off. This year, I’d been keeping my eye on a much smaller one growing in the middle of the pumpkin patch, but accidentally snapped it off the plant when showing it off to Mr Saz. It’s turning nice and orange in my kitchen though so will be good for carving at halloween. This one though, is about six times the size – here is a (big) chicken for scale…
(Also, now that I’ve taken a photo is doesn’t seem that impressive anymore, it’s better in real life!)
