I picked all my remaining tomatoes and made another batch of pasta sauce-ok so I wont have a years supply as we made in Italy but have managed to make 8 jars which I am very proud of.
I have quite a few roses which are still flowering,Golden showers has been flowering since May,I only planted Orange Blush last year and this is its second flush this year,I am sure the scent is better now than earlier in the year or was it just that I was sat next to it eating my fruit salad that I was in this wonderful place thinking is it really october?
Anyway here are some wonderful photos of it sorry scent not attached!
My confused Crinum x powellii is flowering again ,but I think I am going to cut it today and have it in the house as it definetley wont like the cold ,so I think along with my papaver 'Pattys Plum' they will make there way into a vase.
I thought it also best to harvest my Butternut squash ,now last year I grew Avalon which I thought were plenty big enough,but seeing as I got some Harrier seed free I thought I would give it a try.Again I only grew 2 plants as I know they spread and fruit really well.WELL,all I can say I think they were pumpkins not squash!I have not got as many fruit as last year (8) where last year we had 16.But boy this is my biggest weighing in at 2.8kg and the smallest is 1.3kg.
Now we love butternut squash,but there are only 4 of us and with all the best will in the world we cant eat all of this in one go!We roast them in various ways and make soup but has anylone tried them in bread recipes?
