Giant Pumpkin Vine

Another one of the giant pumpkin seedlings has fruited.

I am not sure the the pool fence will be able to support a 100+ KG pumkin though

Royal Treatment for Giant Pumkin

Made a 'throne' for the giant pumpkin to get it off the ground.

This is my other melon patch. Some might be giant pumkins, others grew out of composted food scraps. There might even be water and rock (cantaloupe) melons we purchance. Time will tell - hopefully.

The first giant pumpkin is up to 150mm.

The other plants are growing well and flowering, but so far only one other has fruited.
