My first pumpkin, a Queensland Blue (I think)
Firstly a packet of Pumpkin's Old Favourites Mixed (Erica Vale brand) that I picked up earlier last year somewhere and thought they looked interesting. They include Queensland Blue, Jarrahdale, Butternut, Gramma and Jap & Paw Paw. I can really only see Queensland Blues and Jarrahdale pumpkins growing, so I am not sure what happened to the rest.
Secondly I planted 6 triamble seeds from The Digger's Club. I grew them last year and they were by far the best producing pumpkin I have ever seen. They have the added advantage of storing for up to two years.
Last of all I planted a punnet of Japanese pumpkins that I saw and just couldn't resist before christmas. Really didn't need them, but did have a great little spot full of compost and easy to add on to the retic so I knew it wouldn't be much more work. They do need a little work at the moment though as the asparagus seems to have disappeared under them!
