Bit of a squash


This year, I planted a few different squash and pumpkins, hopefully early enough to actually mature. Last year our one pumpkin of any size was still green at the end of the growing season.

I also built a teepee type thing for beans and to get the gourds to grow up. I’d been looking at a tiny little squash (I think a turban squash) for a little while, wondering if it was going to get any bigger, and then today found a couple of much larger ones hiding under leaves at ground level. We’ve also got round courgettes, but one has got big enough to be called a marrow. Help! Too much courgette.
