While both plants have produced masses of flowers - which apparently last for just one day - and lots of tiny pumpkins, the slugs and snails have had a field day munching all the baby pumpkins. The one that got the furthest had grown to around the size of a grapefruit, but even that has lost the battle to the slimy devils. So we had no home grown pumpkin to carve for tomorrow.
After a frantic hunt around as most of the stores seemed to have sold out, we managed to find two small ones and two a bit bigger, which have now been carved ready for the trick-or-treaters.
Until next time. x
