Giant pumpkin seedling opening up in a pot

Seedlings have started

The seeds must have known what I wrote about them the other day, because they have exploded out of the soil in the pots, and are growing crazy fast.

To help the seedlings after they emerged, I gently (very gently) pulled the seed cases off of the leaves.

They are growing at a tremendous rate, and won’t be too long until they will be put into the patch.  I’m waiting until the 3rd leaf forms properly, and it will be time, this leaf allows me place it the correct way, so I can work out which way the vine will run.
