My first successful pumpkin! Bertha is a mini pumpkin of a variety I've forgotten and turned out quite well. Baby steps!

Now that is size I need.  I have never had any success with pumpkins but maybe it is time I gave it another go

Unfortunately it is still a bit of a sprawling vine Christa, I would recommend a trellis.

Does it have a small vine as well, Sid?  I am looking for a pumpkin that does not take over the yard.
