Here's the label, and a photo of the vine. It's pretty rampant! Forgot to say, it had to be peeled before eaten.

Delicious!  Tastes like what it's called! texture of an apple, zesty like a lemon, and refreshing like a cucumber. Brilliant! Hope I get some more growing!

Morning lovely folks.  It's my second year with my dream greenhouse Lyn. Thanks Kef. Great idea! Not tried that before.

Any ideas what to do with this? It's a cucumber-apple-lemon! Size of a tennis ball.  Thought I'd give growing it a go for a bit of fun. No idea what it's going to taste like! It says 'good for pickles' on the label... I'll report back following consumption!

Weeds to lawn

Posted: 26/07/2014 at 21:42

Water, water and more water Sandy24. New turf is thirsty stuff. I laid some last summer and lost it due to the hot dry conditions. I'd wait as Verdun says. It's a good year for weeds, sadly! Our lawn has never had so many. Was going to use weed and feed, but am worried the birds might eat it and be poorly. 

Yum yum

Loving harvesting these, but running out of family and friends to offload them to! Still got tonnes on the plants and lots of flowers too! A good year for cucumbers!

Morning folks, pls can anyone advise what to do next with lupins? I have just potted these on from a seed tray which I'd left in the greenhouse. Do they need to go back in the greenhouse or a cold frame, or just left outside? Do I plant them in the ground this year, or can I leave them in pots to get bigger for planting out next year? If I leave them in pots will they die down over winter, and then sprout up again in spring?

 I've got the same question with these foxgloves Which are now massive for the pots. If I leave them will they die down and sprout up again in spring? Thanks muchly for any advice!

Courgette questions!

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 20:40

sorry about the 'angle' of the photo (!) but how do I stop my courgettes from being all bulbous at one end and skinny at the other? I had a lot of this last year and was advised to water regularly which I've done but it still looks like it's happening. 

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/51154.jpg?width=360&height=350&mode=max

 Also, I seem to get a lot of flowers on stalks and fewer courgettes - is there a reason for this and is there a method of getting more of the flowers that develop into courgettes? Thanks muchly.
