Ginagibbs , yes we have certainly had cold winds in Lincolnshire , mine are not looking brill , interesting to see what they are like when I get back off hols ?

The courgettes , 2 are growing well in a sheltered spot and 2 in a more exposed bit are not looking to good 

the potatoes are looking really good but it all depends what it is like when I start digging them up !

the challenge and joy of gardening !

Ginagibbs , just a thought perhaps the manure is to rich for your squashes , last year I grew them in ground where the manure was dug in , in spring
