So, I have gone through all 49 pages of this thread to compile some results.
These were the initial entrants (all were given seeds to participate):
These are the results that have been posted so far in relation to weight and circumference.
Scribe: Bandicoot Valley was the only entrant to scribe a pumpkin, so obviously wins that category, with a beautiful swirly pattern.
Colour: I’ve put the thread page number next to the entrant details so everyone can easily go back and have a look at the entrants. I like mistyhollows for colour, but I’d like everyone to let me know what they think. Here are the other stats:
Weight/Circumference:Steve – no result posted (all succumbed to fruit fly/rot)
mistyhollows – 7kg, 96cm (p.40)
Porgey – no result posted re weight/circumference (see p.40 for colour)
Humbug – 10kg, 102cm (p.46)
Iduna – 135cm, 26.9kg (p.47)
karyn26 – 17kg, 122cm (p.49)
Bandicoot Valley – BOB1 25.3kg, 130cm, BOB2 30.1kg, 152cm (p.49)
Marz – 3.9kg, 57.5cm (no picture posted that I could find)
gypsyoak – 34kg, 153cm (p.47)
Bel – BOB1 20.8kg, 133cm BOB2 39.2kg, 136cm
There are still a few entrants who have not posted results. How about letting us know how you went? If there are no more updates by the end of the week, I’ll announce the final winners. And don’t forget to place your vote for best colour 🙂May 6, 2012 at 7:07 pm #503630KristyMember
No luck for me Bel, didnt have much luck with seed, will try again if you have another comp 🙂May 6, 2012 at 7:33 pm #503631busylizzieParticipant
Oops sorry Bel :blush: I’ll get my BOB organised for his photo shoot.May 6, 2012 at 7:34 pm #503632marzMemberMay 6, 2012 at 8:14 pm #503633
That’s a shame Kirsty. Better luck next year! I’m hoping I have enough seed to go around for next year, but if not perhaps others will be saving their seeds too.
Looking forward to you pics Bizliz 🙂
thanks for posting a photo Marz. It’s amazing how different they all look. Yours is quite a good colour :tup:May 6, 2012 at 8:21 pm #503634IdunaMember

Oops Iduna, so they are, sorry about that :blush: I’ve edited my previous post to reflect the page of your results post.May 7, 2012 at 9:02 pm #503636Bandicoot ValleyMember
Best colour is hard to judge as there are 3 that look pretty good. Humbug, do you have the colour card to go with your pumpkin?
Humbug’s UglyBob on page 46 – but doesn’t have the colour card with it
Gypsyoaks on page 47
Mistyhollows on page 40May 7, 2012 at 10:36 pm #503637HummerKeymaster
Nope.. I think I did mention that along the way somewhere, my card has gone walkabout. But that is fine, I’m happy to bow out of this comp.. I had a ball & will definitely be in next years.. as long as I can get another card 🙂
Hey Bel.. can you tell us where to get the card from ? … I still have my BOB as I haven’t cut him up yet.. maybe if I can get another card, I may not be too late … :shrug:May 7, 2012 at 11:18 pm #503638marzMember
yes I might be able to get another card too – were they paint colour cards?May 8, 2012 at 4:45 am #503639mistyhollowsMember
I still haven’t cut my Bob up yet Bel if you need extra seeds. I’ll save some.May 8, 2012 at 11:44 am #503640
Porgey printed off the colour cards – I think they are actually photos of colours. I have 3 spare if you PM me your address again I’ll send them to you.May 8, 2012 at 4:46 pm #503641karyn26Member
My BOB is sitting on a table under a tree ATM.
I’ll cut him open on the weekend and save his seeds also.
Looking forward to doing this again,it’s been fun.
So Bel if enough of us keep seed then we can pass them on also to other( unaware persons) oh I mean other interested people.May 9, 2012 at 4:13 pm #503642busylizzieParticipant
Heres my little BOB 🙂 was a little flat on the bottom so,
Color: Pretty good, damn card was hanging around all this time and now I cant find it :pinch:
Scribe: I did scratch BOB into it with my fingernail, cant see it in pic thou, oh if you look hard you can
If only I’d actually looked after BOB and fertilized and watered him, he could have been a winner :whistle: next year :cheer:
