What a whopper!

Our butternut squash plant has responded marvellously to Mr M's anecdotes and gentle nurturing. May I introduce butternut squash number two. The first one got a little shy and started to turn, so we cut the squishy bits off and roasted the rest. We have high hopes for this one. Every time I leave the flat I can't help but plot just how we should savour it. I'm currently favouring stuffing.

On a completely different note, I've just started a new book - The Piano Teacher. It's a jolly good read so far. A nice little bit of escapism.


  1. I got one in my veg box today - it is destined for sweet potato and butternut squash soup, methinks.

  2. I really admire people who can make things grow! I am OK with Children but anything plant wise I find a hard task, keep forgetting about them! I suppose it is better this way than the other way round!

  3. I'm so jealous. Our squash have been a complete wash out this year. What's your secret?!
