Wow ShotgunPaul. I'm surprised you ever have to go to the shops at all. Great idea to plant the herbs in with the veg as well. i have even seen people plant them in with their shrubs. Would love to see a pic of your pumpkins. Razz

Oh, I keep forgetting that you are on the other side of the world ShotgunPaul.
Here in Ireland any pumpkins grown would not be harvestable for another few months.

Morning all,

Well here in Australia it is about time to start planting pumpkin again.
I have dug up a seperate "patch" this year dedicated to growing pumpkin this
way it wont interfere with my other vege "patches" as it did last season.
My daughter thinks she wil have pumpkin coming out of her ears when they
harvest (I,m laughing at the thought of it.) Rolling Eyes

Regards,
Paul. Cool
