Simply Chateau is pleased to announce....
After throwing down the gauntlet to all our friends to see who could grow the biggest pumpkin by Halloween I have been receiving photographs of their huge yellow and orange specimens all ready for the competition evening.
After planting my seeds along with everyone else I had lots of foliage but no pumpkin at all.
Everyday I have visited the plants, checked , watered, fed, prodded, pampered, sung, wailed in dismay and as a last resort gave them a team talk about production and giving their all for the chateau reputation.
Finally I am pleased to announce the arrival of my specimen. It has been a long painful process and as you will see from the photographs he appears to be "green" and not yellow. I am not even sure he is a pumpkin at all and I am slightly worried he may be a courgette!
However, despite his unusual appearance he shall be greatly loved and cosseted and he shall be called "WINNER"!!!
He has a few weeks to grow huge!!!
