A Quick Pumpkin

Hopefully it is not too late for these guys, pumpkin 'Big Max' (how can you resist growing a pumpkin with a name like that? Bugger how it tastes!) and some butternut squash 'Cobnut', seeds courtesy of my gardening heroine, Auntie Lis.

These are to replace plants which germinated, but didn't thrive - only a couple germinated and those that did were struck down with foot rot (where the stem splits in two and the leaves get really spindly and pathetic).

Luckily the heated propagator meant they germinated in just two days, so just in time to have them outside by the end of May. Phew!
