This morning at the allotment I decided to go exploring in the jungle of my Butternut Squash to try and find some fruit. Up until recently all the flowers were male, and I despaired of having any squash to store for winter. Here is what I found - two piddling little squashes about three inches long, and this one:-
about six inches long. And that's it, literally, that's all there is, amongst about twenty feet of rambling stems that seem to cover most of the garden - three piddly little squashes. What can I say!
