When I saw them I was astounded at the size of Mum's trombone squash she grew this year. She attributes her success to lots of animal manure and keeping the water up.
I knew I had to take a photo and share it with our local paper. Locals and their big veggies are a regular sight in it's pages.
The photos turned out great, and the photo with Mum and the girls was published in the South Eastern times yesterday.
In my own garden I've just pulled up my tomato plants. The green ones are ripening on the window sill.
Almost time to start buying them again at the supermarket. Not the same.
I have planted seeds of broad beans, snow peas and beetroot in the spaces left from the tomatoes.
