My "Atlantic Giant" Pumpkins have just sprouted as well.

These beauties gan grow up to 300kg plus :shock: soI'm hoping for a good one to enter into the Collector Pumkin festival next year.

Kee thinks I'm a bit potty and see's me going out and checking up on it at midnight and guarding it as the festival draws closer :lol:

I also haven't got a clue what to do with afterwards either :hmm

:lol: I've got a different variety also grows 300kg plus, also planning on entering in the pumpkin festival...game on ;)

Sounds like fun to me, I accept your challenge. :lol:

I've worked out what to do with it as well, I'm going to make about 3000 pumkin scones and sell them off at a $1 each :D

Why not scoop the flesh out and make herb garden? Perhaps you could cut holes in the sides to plant strawberries or some other hanging plant.
Do pigs eat pumpkin flesh?
