Noticifaction of the start of the Great Mangamahu Pumpkin growing contest.

Notification of the start of the Great Mangamahu Pumpkin growing contest.

Greeting loyal readers.  Well, it is that time of the year again, when mummy’s thoughts turn to pumpkin growing.  Yesterday she received in the mail  notification that the pumpkins seeds are ready to be delivered (Upon payment of $5.)

So, this morning she took Me for a walk to the neighbour’s place to pay her money. I was such a good dog walking on my lead.

See, Me on my lead.

See, Me on my lead.

The Neighbour’s cow came over to see Me.

Mummy had saved some seeds from last year’s giant pumpkin and has started growing them.  Also, in preparation she brought some pony-poo, but she says she will need lots more during the growing season.

So, loyal readers if you have any handy hints on how to grow giant pumpkins, can you let mummy know.  Goodness knows she will need all the assistance she can get.  Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

    You’re asking ME?? We tried, but have so many hungry bunnies that it is impossible. He does asparagus in pots off the ground, but pumpkins need room. We have the room, but also the rabbits. Don’t blame me, I’m inside most of the time and can’t get to them.

    We have not been able to grow pumpkins we have to buy ours, but I wish your Mom lots of luck. I hope she can grow a huge pumpkin:-)

    We’re a pumpkin free zone, none here I’m afraid.

  4. I have no hints, our harvest is always pitiful :o) but I wish you may have the biggest pumpkin ever :o)

  5. Mummy doesn’t have green fingers so no idea. But i’ve heard that talking to plants helps them grow, so perhaps if you bark extra loudly at them they’ll get big and strong!

    I do not know much about growing pumpkins, just eating pumpkins treats so I wish your mum lots of luck with growing. Also FYI…pony poo is awesome to roll around in! Don’t tell your mum I told you this. Wagging wordless Wednesday.

    The only gardening I know about is the digging kind… Do you need help digging?
