HELP... Hundreds of strange eggs on my lawn and soil?

Looks like Nostoc - a sort of algae. 


Some info here http://www.downgardenservices.org.uk/bluegreenalgae.htm 


The best solution is to improve drainage.

Sorry Topbird, got distracted ... looks like arrivals at Norwich are running on time at the moment, and the fog has certainly lifted - just low cloud now.

Butternut squash - what to do with under ripe ones (etc)?

Did you see what Monty showed on GW the other week?  Harvest squash with a piece of the main stem so that it forms a T rather than just the squash's individual stem - apparently that helps avoid the stem rotting and rot setting into the fruit. 

Name that poo!
