So here it is now May 2014 and I picked this in early September 2013. Haven't a clue on what variety as brought a single pumpkin plant for 50p from a car boot in late May last year. Not the bright orange variety but a creamy yellow color. Its big about 15 to 20 lb - never got round to weighing it either!!
Not bad looking considering that its about 8 months old. Don't fancy using it for cooking and the seeds may not grow true to form as I don't know the variety and if its an F1 hybrid they won't. So at the moment its decorating a corner of our garden. Any better ideas?
