Sounds like a bounty of gooseberries you have there, fruitcake. I had one bowl full last week. Grow them at home too and those are looking to be a bumper crop.
Growing squash for the first time along with pumpkin's. The first plants died, me think's due to a late frost but I've planted more. Mine have been slow to grow Ginagibbs, and the earlier leaves went pale and yellowy so I just removed the leaves. The ground was covered in muck last October, I tend to do it in the autmn, one less job in the Spring. Mine are a long way off flowering let alone bearing a crop. I've also courgettes and a gourd plant. The swan gourds from last year are drying nicely. I've hung them from the pea supports to frighten the birds.
Spuds are along way off yet and 2nd early plants are bigger than the 1st earlies
Did more planting out today, beetroot, lettuse, kale, spinach, basil and gladioli. Also started sowing biennials for next year.
Ginagibbs, Do you think it could have been the flea beetle which caused our broccoli to bolt.
