A couple were planted in a straw bale - my three week absence (a.k.a. lack of water) took care of those.
And I planted one in neat compost in a deep pot - right next to a sprinkler head LOL. (the little "wall" constructed behind the plant catches the water from the sprinkler and drops it into the pot - works perfectly :) RMan reckons I have great "squatter" potential).

Finally, next to my town veggie hut I dug a shallow hole, filled it with compost, and shoved two seeds in. One survived - obviously a case of survival of the fittest :)

And took flight...
Higher and higher...
|Can you see the little pumpkin suspended|
in mid air - no sooner had I spotted it
than it got stung, turned black and fell off
Will either of these two plants actually grow a feasible pumpkin? I'll let you know...
