Hi Mal, welcome to visit our forum  :)
How long have you been growing giant vegetables ?    Has the weather been good for  growing in northern England ?

I had to chance those lb's to kg's first  :)   So your biggest pumpkin was 361 kg and biggest marrow 42 kg. Fine results !!   This is my 4 th year and I still try to get to 300-kg (660 lb) level  in pumpkins :)

What seems to be your best this year, do you know ?

Well, there is still time to grow  :)
I wrote that article to EGVGA's newsletter and put there our forum-addres because it is very interesting to hear from growers from other countries - what they are growing, and how is year going.  Even more interesting it gets if somebody here has the same seed growing than for example there in England :)
Hope you visit here often and tell about your growings !

I lived in the border of North Wales and England (near Chester)  and I know the weather conditions there. Is yours the same ?    By the way, North Wales and northern England (Yorkshire etc.)  stole my heart forever  :-*  It is like heaven to Finnish people because it's weather !
