What? Why? !
So, 1 of the squasheses is looking like it might be reafy but how do I tell if its ready to pick?
Should I remove this male flowers?
We'll be taking our chances then
How do you know if they're greenhouse ones or not? Always been given then in the past and fsiled miserably. This year Thompson and Morgan (or similar) sent 2 mini plugs- I refuse to waste my time so t' other half is having ago in a pot outside. Ditto 2 courgette plants his boss gave us. Bloomin curbits!
Lol, just wondered becase you're supposed to take them off cucumbers aren't you? I'm such a dunce with veg!
Just checked and there are indeed a lot of male flowers and a dozen or so fruits. More budds but I'll stop worrying til i see what they are.
First time. Growing a squash, 1 plsnt in a big pot and trained up canes and string like a nest. Finally got round to nipping out the growing tips and realised just how many fruit are on there. Suspect i should thin them but what's the criteria?
Found rust on my autumn planted garlic yesterday, first time growing it. When should I lift them? 1st time with onions too so same question, they don'thave rust... yet!
