The great hope, the spaghetti squash, turned (literally) out to have a darker side
Looks good doesn't it?
I thought that maybe the beetroot would be better...
But all except one are a bit small, and even that one had a borehole in it. The three chioggia on the right are the most well matched of all, but only golf ball sized.
I picked a load of runner beans, some of them so big you could fell a passing burglar with it...
Tomorrow, when I have more energy and persistence, I will spread them out and try to find 6 matching beans.
I do have some other things, so I haven't given up yet, I have french beans, blackberries, peppers both sweet and hot, jam, chutney, pickle.
Pictures in the next exciting instalment.
But nothing is lost if I don't enter anything, it is all edible, even the cracked squash. And the hunky beans will be podded and frozen for use through the winter.
