Mark's Veg Plot blog. Here they are with another freshly picked courgette. I have to say that both varieties are very tasty and I'm looking forward to the next harvest.
My squash are doing much better this year than they did last year. The patty pan variety, Sunburst, just seems to be getting going, but the winter squash, Crown Prince and Queensland Blue, are fruiting. I just hope that I manage to nurture some through to maturity this year. Last year, they fruited so late that I didn't get to harvest any of the winter squash, and only a few patty pans.
The Corno di Torro Rosso peppers seem to be doing well. I had five plants but unfortunately, one came to a sticky end, so I'm now left with four. They've fruited well this year, there's quite a few peppers on each plant, so they just need to ripen now. It's a bit of a waiting game at the moment with the tomatoes and peppers, I'm watching them daily waiting for them to show signs of turning red. A little more sunshine would be good.
