Pumpkin Harvest

We brought in our pumpkin harvest this week. The girls have had fun designing their Jack O' Lanterns and I have enjoyed helping them carve out the pumpkins. I am not a big fan of the way that Hallowe'en has become commercialised over the last decade or so but with pumpkin seeds costing only a few pence and with the pumpkins not needing much care and attention on the allotment I can have no complaints at our home-grown efforts. In fact I quite like them.


  1. Hi Phil. What variety did you grow? They look lovely.

  2. Hi ITW, they were Tom Fox pumpkin seeds which I ordered from Kings Seeds via their allotment society catalogue. Phil.

  3. They turned out really well, we've souped our first one. I need to do some carving next year, yours look great!
