Half of one of our Damson trees has snapped off. The fruit is dark purple, but not quite ripe. Question is, will it ripen off the tree? Or is this crop lost?

These Sucrene du Berry and Potimarron are the first of my squashes ready for curing now all the foliage has died off and looking very unsightly! They are from the first 4 plants planted outdoors on 9th May under fleece protection. The Sucrene weigh between 859g and 1880g each and the Potimarron a kilo or so each, so along with later sown Butternuts (8 fruit growing well) and another Sucrene in a grow bag with 4 fruit on it I am well supplied for use in all sorts of yummy recipes over the coming winter :icon_cheers:, with enough for my friendly neighbours too.

It's the first time I've grown Sucrene - hope they store well and are as good as the Barbara which I grew last year. The Barbara is just too big for my one person household so I ended up giving most of them away.

The votes are in!

And the winner is Peanuts with picture 5!  I knew it was a winner when I first saw it.  Peanuts gets to choose the next topic but seriously someone else will have to step up and do this.  I just don't seem to have any time any more.

Here are the rest of the runners and riders..

What a story!

My mum lost a ring while gardening when I was little- and dug it up many years later- but not quite like this!
