Showtime and Giant Pumpkin attempt

It has been a long time since I posted anything on here,a lot has happened and growing has had to take a back seat. I have however managed to grow some lovely leeks and some nice carrots onions from setts and a few other bits for my local show. I grew a few bits last year and managed to get a 4th place in the national championships with Stump carrots my first national and respectable 4th out of 20+ entries I nearly didn't bother as the carrots were the only thing I had, but I am glad I did.I have also been having a bit of fun trying to grow a giant Pumpkin with Grandson Harley. It is currently about 150lb which we are pleased with for a first attempt some photos are below. I will try to post some show photos after the judging .
