Musing on life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
Good crop - anyone would think you were in the US!
Thanks Helen - they did go a bit mad this year. I shall be looking to our American blogging pals for recipes ;)
Wow, they're wonderful. Well done you. And they'll make a lovely autumn display.
Hi CJ - this was going to be my post for Halloween, but I found something rather marvellous to show you instead whilst in Wales last week!
They look good, what variety are they. I grew a mini variety one year but haven't since. Perhaps next year. Flighty xx
Hi Flighty - they're Jack be Little and the size is perfect for us. I'm going to try and recreate a fab squash salad I had at the Yeo Valley Organic Garden a couple of weeks ago.My Nepalese allotment neighbour wants to try this variety next year too!
Lovely display have a good rest of week and weekend
Thanks Linda, you too
Now that's a seriously good haul and the purple really enhances their golden glow VP. Flighty took the words out of my mouth asking about which variety they are,
Hi Anna, I love the smaller squash - perfect for just NAH and me :)
Very colourful. Guess they are the ones that were rampant!
They are indeed!
Very nice!Beautiful color!Lea
Thanks Lea - BB it's Salad Days tomorrow :)
Hah that should be NB - Damn autocorrect!
Lovely photo and good harvest. I have never attempted growing squash, haven’t really got the right garden for it but I like eating them :-)
Thanks Helene - I hope to feature them in a seasonal recipe soon :)
