This Paton Twins Giant Pumpkin only germinated a couple of days ago. Yet the two seed leaves are already 5" across. Just goes to show the importance of good genetics. The roots are already coming out of the bottom of the flower pot. Now all I need is a couple of sunny days to get it hardened off before planting outside. Where is the sunshine?
I was born 20 yards from our allotment. My parents used to 'dig for victory' and never got out of the habit. I grew up on an allotment, so growing veggies is a way of life. I am also qualified as a dog behaviourist and I have set up my own business, www.blackdogdna.com
