Pumpkins

20 Sep

Look at these pumpkins! (aren’t they gourd-eous?!). I particularly liked the seashell-smooth white one.

It was actually kind of sad to hack them to bits (they were not easy to peel) to make into soup.

I am still trying to grow things on the balcony, having enlisted the boy to shift everything around in the hope that nestling all the pots against the southern end will protect them from the wind.

The little strawberry plants are holding on stoically, and have planted some heathers in the hope that they will be able to survive in the winter (so I don’t just have eight buckets of mud out there for the next six months). Have also hopefully planted about 25 narcissi bulbs. Will keep you posted…
