Pumpkin sex - I'm not alone!

I was feeling a bit deflated this afternoon after noticing that one of the pumpkins which I lovingly pollinated by hand the other day has shrivelled up and dropped off the vine. Hmmm, there's gratitude for you!

I had a quick Google for more tips but nothing really jumped out at me. However, I just stopped by one of my regular blog haunts and found that I'm not the only one who's at it! There are many more details here. Perhaps I should incorporate some of the 'mood' suggestions and such like next time I attempt it.

Got to fly. We're having a family meeting/dinner this evening to discuss the possibility of adopting battery hens. Craig doesn't yet know there is to be a 'save the hens discussion' but will soon. I think we should adopt one hen. Nana thinks we should get a a couple of sheds, fit them out with perches and adopt a dozen or more!!!! Hermione seems to be sitting on the fence. I'll let you know the outcome.

I can't wait to know what you decide. Does Craig know that his vote doesn't count anyway!!

We've just finished round one. Hermione has gone to bed, Craig has popped out to buy a bottle of wine and we are about to start round two.
