I've got triffids like that in my garden. I think it's all one plant, which is a buffy ball squash and is a mass of squashes. There are other varieties in the same bed but I can't tell where the buffy ends and the others begin.


I quite fancy having a go at watermelons but I don't have a polytunnel only a smallish greenhouse and no room for a cold frame anywhere.

Alreadu ripped out! They really were compromising ventilation to the aubergines. Much easier to work in there now.

I migth try again next year neaty up poles.. 'cos i won't bother with cornichon again - well at least not 4 plants. Once they got going it was gherkins every day that grew huge very very fast and i have enough pickled for a looong time...
