Todays harvest This is the eatable half of this years crop, other half goes to the chocks because the pumpkin flower hadn't pollinated, the seeds are hollow and the flesh tasteless.The eatable ones are a dry and nice strong tasting pumpkin,if it wasn't for the fact that half the crop is no good to eat,i wouldn't grow any other. But

Anyone want some seed?

pumpkins may not be banned.
since they're pumpkins...and thus provide oodles of seed...just mail 'em fair and square and declare...and let's see what happens.
use the botanical name...and that will make things go a lot more smoothly.
banana

and i would love an inside piccy when you got one.
they sure *purdy* on the outside.

I'll mail the seed the way you reacon.
Do you plan on planting these seeds now as i have some seed from last years lot. This years crop needs to sit in the shed for about 6 weeks before i start to cutting in to them,the flavour really matures over this time, they also a good keeper too.
