Squash Progress

In a previous post I covered how I was losing the squash. Turned out I was mistaking the female flower as actually something growing properly.

Now that I know that I need to help the pollination of this plant, I’m well on my way to sampling some home produce. I currently have four growing really well:

This has grown significantly in just a few days. I’ve put the secateurs there to try to give some concept of size.

This on the other hand is still tiny but I have my eye on her and several others and will have to keep an eye on them to pollinate them too when the flower opens.

Time to look up the recipe books to make something with these. Jamie Oliver muffins come to mind 😉
