The joy of allotment year 2016-01-25
I have been growing for nearly 20 years 15 years ago coming into contact with these winter squash seeds they are must , Christmas dinner is lacking without them as it was last year as harder to find at garden centres and I bought from a good online company the foliage and fruit looking spot on except the fruit sorry ,squash not having the same green marbeling and squash tasting bad. Now online to T& M glory of the sweet nutty roasted veg a favourite of my ten year old. Easy to grow taking a third of the room as courgette 's these you slice down the segments , peel remove seeds and bake for half hour you will not believe the taste. 14 years on these seeds
