The above squash plant makes me think of a queen song. I have now taken down the cat protection to allow it to grow wild.

Natural vs un natural. The supermarket ones are so tough, they’re like cutting cucumber. The taste is similar, but the texture is eugh. Nice one Tesco. The natural are juicy and tiny.

Mangetout

Look at the new offering from your local superstore!

Only joking – these mangetout are both heritage varieties! We’ve already had the yellow variety this week, but the sneaky green type was hiding! Some of them are absolute monsters!
