    Sadly, Rocket Ron turned out to be a bit of a dud.

    Although seven pumpkins in total formed on the main vine, all but one were aborted due to the summer heat. The one remaining did reach the size of a big pomelo before it was donated, while still immature, to eager looking human squirrels.

    Lucky I still had Tall Thin Sally.
