Rather than bin them you can give them to somewhere like Lifeline or church or similar... I give any excess to the school to sell as a fundraiser... but one of the churches in town here cooks for the homeless and often asks for excess.

Yours looks the same colour as mine scratch

Anyway, I'm off outside... just done an hour or so on the computer and getting a head-ache from all the concentration 🤡 so need a break in the Exclamation with the flower

that blue looks really nice inside, MA. darker orange than the ones i'm used to having.

too bad you binned all those pumpkins. Crying or Very sad

when i had that lemon tree out the back making hundreds of lemons...i would simply put lemons on the lawn right next to the footpath. they would disappear one-by-one.
no one has ever helped themselves to the lemons growing on the front tree...so i think it doesn't exactly train people to come in and help themselves.

I was only going to put them inside my gate right against the fence on a table, but I reckon they would have pinched that too or thrown the jolly pumpkins down the street and smashed them like they did with our letterbox.

Hi Mary-Anne, I have been trying to coach some pumpkins to grow here but no joy yet.

Next time you have seeds would you mind posting me some? Happy to send postage. I am still as busy as a one-armed bricklayer in Bahgdad...hopefully work will slow down soon.

We are currently getting a vege cage built here. Somehow have to stop those pesky possums.

Can't sleep - so popped online. Will go and let chooks out soon and then start work in yard.
