It won't be long now before we will be thinking of starting our pumpkins off under cover. How about making it a competition for young gardeners to grow, and care for, a pumpkin before dressing it up Halloween style? This is a long term project for us, let alone kids, but would be great fun especially and the end prize is not for the largest but for the most creative. What do you think?
This is what the youngsters in our village came up with last year.
