A few weeks ago I took a trip down to Tiverton for the day to meet a friend at Blundells school. On the way there I had an hour to spare so I took a short detour to Cheddar. Having sampled the excellent cheese, and scrumpy.... I visited a local village shop to purchase some clotted cream. Outside this village shop were a few veggie plants, so as a memorable souvenir I bought a 'Butternut Squash'
. This is incredibly early and the bush is now covered with little squashes. It also looks at this early stage as if they are all female flowers too! I've not grown butternut before. Looks promising.
Everything seems to be getting bigger day by day at the moment. Lots of the tomatoes have set and are progressing well. Here is one of my 'Tigerella' tomatoes which I am trying for the first time this year. Even as young fruitlets they are beautiful, but the proof of the pudding, of course, is in the eating. The packet said they are prolific and resistant to greenback.
PS. I've now got broadband!! pictures took a fraction of the time to upload to blogger. Hooray!
