Ready, set and grow

ETHAN Ryan is getting his garden ready with the help from his mum Louisa. They both have been working really hard to get the ground ready for planting.

At this year's competition Ethan won the junior section with his pumpkin weighting in at 84.5 kg and for a four year old that was a very big achievement.

So look out growers, Ethan is ready to grow the big one for next year's competition that will be held on January 30, 2016 at the Kyogle Showground.

The seeds will be in the shops real soon so keep an eye out for them.

They will be in Kyogle at Kyogle Tractors, CRT, NORCO, Lismore Landmark, Casino CRT, Bangalow, Alstonville NORCO, Brunswick Heads Village Greens and Murwillumbah.

Dale Oliver has kindly donated some of his seeds from his Australian Record Pumpkin that weighed in a massive 743 kg.

Be early to grab one.
