The pumpkin that looks like a marrow

The expected rain has come, though it is more of a solid patter than a storm. In any case, it has made walking round the garden, doing the plant inspection, very comfortable this morning.

Aside from picking a handful of blueberries for my daughter’s breakfast smoothie, I noticed that the pumpkin (the big healthy plant) appears to be growing a fruit. It looks more like a marrow than a pumpkin to me at the moment, though. I wish I could say the same about the cucumbers but so far the plant just keeps churning out the flowers. Still, anything can happen overnight…

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
