The Winter Squash are well under way. So much so I can barely see the fruit for the leaves. I have to get on my hands and knees and peer under leaves to catch a glimpse of the squash growing.
I can’t take any photos of the Bon Bon’s, Queensland Blue or Crown Prince as the canopy of foliage is too dense. Ditto For the Kikuza and the Orange Cushaw, they are there somewhere I just can’t see them at the moment. That can only mean happy plants.
I’m able to get to the Anna Swartz Hubbard, Australian Butter, Black Futsu, Green Striped Cushaw, Little Gem, Potimarron and Spaghetti Squash. The Burgess Buttercup seems to have given up, and the Blue Banana bought it early on in the season.
From planting out in June, through to settling in properly in July, to romping away in August.
We just need a good September and October for them to fully ripen on the vine, then we’ll have a very happy and bountiful winter
