Abducted by aliens?

OK so I've been offline for a while.........and you were probably wondering why..

no, I wasn't actually abducted by aliens (so far as I know!). We were on holiday in the beautiful South Island (photos to come).

Meanwhile, this is what happens when you leave scallopini (patty pan) squash to their own devices......!

Giant scallopini sqush
It weighed in at a staggering 1.7kgs! Yes we did eat it although it wasn't particularly tasty! I stuffed it with a mix of spicy mince, rice, tomatoes and cheese, and the chickens got our (substantial) leftovers.

Has been incredibly dry for weeks but we've had a little rain overnight and drizzle today. The sweetcorn in the above picture are nice and ripe.

Hi BLD in MT, yes a biggie alright!

Hi Paola, you're so right! :-)
