morning/afternoon/evening all :)
I am growing a few squash and different pumpkins this year but I always grow Atlantic Giant, this year I'm going to molly coddle this Atlantic and see if I can manage a whopper, fingers crossed.;) This is he, just potted on for the first time and looking good so far.:)

Hi Zigs and yes I certainly do :) Last years old compost heap was where I grew the last lot but I just grew them normally for eating and storing with the usual care etc but this Atlantic, I am going to "try and feed and water the beast" :devil: and maybe even talk to it ha ha just to see what I get :rolleyes:. I know I know, a bit out there but you don't try these things then you will never know :D;)
