The autumn harvest - pumpkins

For some reason Pumpkins have always evaded my growing skills. I get tiny teeny ones or nothing at all but vines that take huge space in the garden. Well this year a pumpkin sprouted in the chook house. As we had not chooks at the time it managed to grow. I realised that it was pumpkining. I had fertilised three more than the crop of two that I got but it was just too late in the season and cold so they got no bigger than a tennis ball before they went yellow. But here is my gorgeous crop of two very big and healthy pumpkins. Looking forward to have pumpkin, green curry and coconut soup, YUM!!!!
