An Early Entry for the Show

This year I planted some seeds of a pumpkin variety called 'World's Largest'. I thought it might provide a few entries for the kids in the Biggest Pumpkin Competition at the local show in March.
It is certainly an apt name as this pumpkin grew so large so quickly that it broke off its vine. This is not surprising as it weighs about 25kg! There are two other fruits growing which have not reached such a size but are still attached. These now have supports underneath so will hopefully reach a fair size by the time they are needed.
