Pumpkin Squash

My name is Fiona,
and I am a vege gardener.
A neglectful vege gardener.

This is what happens when you don't go near the vege patch for a couple of days.

Button Squash become Pumpkins.

Lots of pumpkins.

Cucumbers multiply exponentially.

Cucumber sandwich anyone?

Meanwhile the latest round of planted seedlings are going well, enjoying the humid days and afternoon storms.

Zucchini seedlings are sending out new leaves, and possibly my favourite herb Rosemary is enjoying its surroundings.

Chives, parsley, eggplant, capsicums, radish, beetroot and spring onions all going well.
And since starting planting vegetables back in October, I haven't watered them once.  An unprecedented season for us.


  1. WOW!

    after looking at these pics i'm even more excited for spring to arrive!!

  2. hmm, I was just thinking the other day about planting some tomato and zuchini seedlings earlier this year - although normally its too hot until late march up here...might have a trial run and see how they go!
    ps what does one do with giant squash? are they a little woody/tasteless?

  3. Those squash are huge. Can you still eat them or are they too tough?

  4. Woke up to news on the flooding, came straight to your page to check on you. Praying for the people and animals affected, so glad to see you're doing ok.

    Blessings, C~

  5. Absolutely awesome veges. Well done.

    Am still on the planet but mentally offline. Change of destination for Drew - he's now going to Ottawa. Documents for study permit need to get to Sydney for approval but are stuck in Toowoomba. Shocked at the horrific scenes coming out of there and Lockyer Valley. Truly frightening and rather sobering. Kiss your kids (and Matthew of course!).

    Have some blogging to catch up on but not in the mood at present. Thanks for your checking-in message.


  6. I am praying you are all ok.
    I have another friend in Ipswich & I am sick to my stomach. I hope you are all well & safe & stay that way over the coming days ahead.
    All my thoughts & love your way, Niki

  7. Wow! The flooding was on the morning radio news in London today. Thinking of you

  8. Your pictures make me yearn for Spring here in Texas! It is very cold here in the northern part of the state.

    Prayers for all of you in the flooding areas. It is a horrible situation.
