We have just been away for a long weekend and come back to find there has been a run on the bank. The squashes have finally decided to grow, throwing out long triffid-like lengths of tendril, which are whomping their way down the bank. And the squashes are starting to form too which is splendid  – I just need to keep the deer off them with my army of old freezer baskets at the ready.

I planted four Golden Hubbard plants and four butternuts of the variety Sprinter which is specially bred to produce well in UK conditions. All are planted into the composted remains (in situ) of six inches deep mulch of last year’s hay. Absolutely no work there.
