It would have been too cold in the shed, they need to be above 10C. I keep mine in the spare bedroom where the radiator valve is only just open, to stop damp.
Grow Your Own / Butternut Squash storage
« Last post by greenhead on Today at 16:46 »
Hi all,  Had a good year with Butternut Squash - 25 fruits from 4 plants. Eaten two but lost the rest in storage!!  Well placed in a closed shed not touching and each fruit ripe.  So what has gone wrong?  Frost or wrong type - Summer or Winter variety?

Commiserations please,!!  and hopefully advice for this year. :(

You would do well to get rid of that carpet before it starts to disintegrate. Anyone who has dealt with rotting carpet will tell you it's one of the more deadly weeds to dig out. May you not find any of it buried in the debris as you clear.

Aubergines (Jack F1) - we'll see if I can do any good without a poly tunnel this far north. Grandson's request (not that he lives close like but we'll see ) and his girl friend wants a long thin sweet pepper like one that grows in Romania that her parents pickle so we are trying Thor F1 as that's the nearest we can find. Hey ho.

Grow Your Own / Re: My pea thread
« Last post by Dev on Today at 14:12 »
Just as a matter of interest, I have been reading Jane Grigson's Vegetable Book from 1978. She recommends the best way to cook peas is boil them in their pods, then serve them with melted butter in a separate bowl. You dip the pod into the butter and nibble out the peas and the outside of the pod. If that's too grand for you shell the peas but keep the pods to puree or make soup.
She's politically incorrect, nowadays, with her use in many recipes of lashings of butter and cream, but it fair "makes your teeth water". You can still get the book on Abebooks if you're interested.

'There is something very reassuring about it all and it makes spring seem that tiny bit closer  :)'

Especially on those gray half light days that we have been having. I keep finding myself opening the cellar door just to admire them  :D
