We have been eating fresh veges for weeks now and it has been fantastic but our pride and joy is the Giant Pumpkin Cara and I planted. The one pumpkin I let grow is huge and is the talking point of the neighbourhood. So much so that we got to meet some neighbours that recently moved in recently but were a bit shy, but their kids wanted to check out the pumpkin :).

This pumpkin grew at such an alarming rate. There were a couple more but I trimmed the plant back because it was taking over the lawn. The most unfortunate thing about this pumpkin is that it is not edible unless used in Pumpkin Pie which we don't eat, so I guess it will become compost. Must remember to keep some seeds for next year, but throw the rest out. I don't really want pumpkins popping up all over the garden :)
