    Those are brilliant pumpkins Rusty!  Fantastic!  Looking forward to seeing the newspaper article.

  • Thanks. 

    Yes I'm from Suffolk and the paper was the "Beccles and Bungay Journal" Which is owned by the "E.D.P". It's going to be an article about my son growing a giant pumpkin, because he was the one that would water and feed it. He also filmed all of my gardening videos on YouTube. I will also be showing some long carrots and long parsnips, also a few other little bits. I will be posting all of my harvest videos to YouTube.

    Hey Rusty - I'm from Suffolk - spent most of my life in the Framlingham/Halesworth area - got transplanted to Norfolk relatively recently - it is lovely here but I'm a Tractor Girl at heart, and my family and many friends live down there so I'm down your way a lot.

    Let me know when you and your son are in the Beccles & Bungay - I'll try to get hold of a copy image
