Just as I wrote that title I thought, cripes, I hope they are pumpkins. I remember quite clearly on one occasion where I spoke to you all quite confidently about some watermelons that were actually zucchinis.
I have grown a pumpkin before though, and these pictured look like pumpkins, so I am going to make a judgement call and state right here and now, that these are pumpkins.
I have had mixed results with pumpkins. What that actually means is that I have grown a grand total of two. I seem to get a lot of vine and not a whole lot of actual pumpkin, I'm not sure what I do wrong. My neighbour suggested pinching the growing tips, this apparently produces more lateral offshoots which in turn produce more female flowers. Of course this had me out there immediately, chopping off the heads of the vines like a champion. I have also mulched and fed them, and we certainly aren't lacking for rain in Brisbane at the moment.
I also did a little bit of reading on the net, and I came across a very cool Australian site called Atlantic Seeds. I'd love to try one of their giant pumpkins next year, 318+ kilos is what the seed packets seem to suggest.
That sounds like a lot of pumpkin scones.
