Viburnum French white

Viburnum bodnantense 'Dawn'

Thanks GG,It is going to my local pub for their Hallowe'en night, but I think they will make soup with it. I have a smaller one  as well that I am going to make soup with,or I might try  pumpkin pie.

I do like the way that you have made your raised bed to fit into an unusual shaped space.

Hi Gardengirl

This is the first time I've tried to add a photo. The red thing to one side is my gardening glove to give an idea of the size of my pumpkin. This is my first attempt at growing them,and I am quite pleased.

The squash is bright yellow outside,creamy colour inside,and look like small flying saucers. They don't have much flavour,so I shall try and stuff one, and I have been told they are good in stir fry.

The rest of the allotment is going well, I have learnt a lot in my first year. Next year I wont plant so many runner beans.  Making a whole meal from veg I had grown was a wonderful feeling.

I want to try and grow purple spuds too!

Really  like the idea of the different coloured veg. Have some purple carrot seed, I believe that carrots used to be  purple before they were bred to be orange.

I hadn't been to my allotment for over a week,and now I have enormous pattypan squash, lovely to look at but I have to look for recipes
