Competition Time!

 Well, tomorrow I post off my application to join in the RHS Heaviest Pumpkin Competition!  Measurements and photographs have to be sent in order that they decide who gets to bring their pumpkin to the show to compete.
I've never done anything like this before. I have never entered any sort of veggie show or competition. They will probably laugh their socks off when they compare mine to those crusty old professionals who have been growing giant pumpkins in their sleep for generations! I probably don't have a hope... but I've had fun anyway. Should know in the next couple of weeks.
