I have a nice butternut swelling and thought it belonged to my friend Barbara. So I checked out her root and gave her a pile of manure, some BFB and water, hoping for another nice big squash. Progress was slow. But then I realised that instead of getting darker the squash was getting paler and paler. It was not a Barbara at all.
I have no idea where the roots to the squash are, they are all jumbled up. And if Barbara has another fruit I certainly cannot find it. I took one off a couple of weeks ago, which is about 3 kg. So expected another one by now.
Then I found I have a small crown prince was rather disappointed. But then found I large one hiding, not sure how a missed a large almost blue squash.
And I have loads of Tromba d'Albenga, one is very dark green, and another has climbed over a compost bin so looks very amusing.
