Well, my Paton Twins Giant Pumpkin
is enjoying this spell of warm, sunny weather. The leaves are enormous! It has certainly inherited some special genetics.
The hot weather over the past few days has stimulated the production of female flowers
on the plant. With any luck this may be the beginnings of a pumpkin of sorts... but the weather so far this Summer hasn't given it the best start it might have had.
Speaking of giants.. do you remember my Bulgarian Giant leeks
from a couple of years ago? Like many giant veggies it was spectacular to look at, fun to grow but tasted of nothing at all really.
Well, here's another Bulgarian Giant
I spotted at the Olympic Volleyball match at Earls Court this morning!
