Portrait Saturday

Souties Squash

This is our first vine of Souties Squash, it’s believed to be a South African heirloom and I can’t wait to try it! We planted the vines close to our outside flatlet which a has a flat roof and is perfect for these vines to ramble across. We have always grown pumpkins and squash in our veggie garden and they have quite simply taken over the whole area, stunting all the other veggies that grow beneath them. I am hoping, by planting them near a flat roofed building, that we can guide them up there and let them go wild:)

    We have just harvested the pumpkins that have grown themselves from the compost heap and are enjoying tomatoes of the same ilk.
    And over the weekend we planted new seedlings for these hot summer months.
    Isn’t it pleasurable to grow our own!

    Happy New Year to you Linda.
    Your blog continues to be an inspiration to so many of us.
    Thank you for sharing your talent and a little of your life with us each week ღ

    Your beautiful squash looks like our mini watermelons. Now I want to run to the store and get one.
    Have a VERY Happy New Year.

    What a lovely photo. It is so nice to see something healthy and growing, when it is just cold and rainy in my bit of the world.
