I am so excited. One of the original pumpkin plants not only has flowers but also a few teeny weeny pumpkins on it. No doubt some will fall off as it grows bigger, but it is most gratifying to see, especially in light of my previous pumpkin troubles.
I potted this plant up to its final pot which is about 30cm/12" wide and will be feeding it on a regular basis. I've never grown this variety before - Summer ball - but hopefully it will do as it says on the packet and I'll be able to harvest baby ones to use as courgettes. Just as well because my courgette/marrow plant is way behind, despite having sown all the seeds at the same time.
