    Default pumpkin thief

    just got back from the lottie after a harvesting trip .Some scumbag has taken one of my two atlantic giant pumpkins.neither were ready to harvest and both were in excess of 40 kilos,they would need to have carried it over 400 yards over two fences to get it out as we have the gates overlooked constantly by the local nosey (but useful ) neighbour.hope they choke on it! I am presently sitting at home moulding a wax doll and sharpening up about 300 very long pins mwhahahahah!

    Sorry to hear about this. I can't imagine what sort of low life would steal a pumpkin.

    That'a awful Snakeshack, with a pumpkin of that size...ya can't blame kids.

    I have a small apple tree in my garden which HAD 17 apples on it (yes, I counted them ), it now has only 6 on. I wouldn't mine....but I know who nicked them (next doors nephew's). They were no way near ready. I only had 1 apple on last year (first year of fruiting) so I was very excited to have 17 this year...but revenge is sweet...they had reeeeeally bad diarrhea the following day

    Dreadful news- makes you wonder whether it's someone who would be competing against you doesn't it????

    I wonder if they've just been hidden somewhere near as you say they are very heavy to be carrying far......
