    Only some of mine have bothered to germinate! I will re-sow next week and I have told them all that too. That usually gets them going lol

          Grew 30+ squash plants across x4 varieties.

          All of them other than this one grew normally, no male of female buds forming yet (not developed enough).

          This strange plant is like some super mutant dwarf variety. I've given it it's own dedicated spot on the plot.

              I'm putting my garden squashes and courgettes out this Thursday.
              My allotment squashes need another week or so in their pots yet.
              My cucumbers are finally starting to catch up, after a shaky start, and should be ready to go into their big pots in a week or so.

                Surprisingly I've not got any to count yet I'll definitely be joining in again. Think I might count each individual variety this year. Instead of total harvested from all squash or pumpkin plants.
                It's going to be fun
