LOOK at the size of THAT!

My husband has just been talking to our neighbour in Turkey, he very kindly waters our plants for us while were back in the UK, in return we take him seeds from here.
He's had my husband in stitches, apprantly he was so shocked by the lengths of the cucumbers that he's dug them up, thinking they were 'genetically modified', then my husband explained that English cucumbers are normally that length. He asked my husband why we needed them that long.....................answers on a postcard please!

On the plus side, the twenty thousand (slight exaggeration) Kabak that I started growing, are doing marvellous and my neighbour has secured me a spot to sell them at our local market, I hope he's joking!

Re: LOOK at the size of THAT!

added to the list of things I am crap at but would love to learn is growing things.

Must be great feeling planting stuff yourself, caring for it and eventually having totally garden fresh veg on your plate.

And dont wanna hear "oh its easy" cos it aint!

Re: LOOK at the size of THAT!

my cucumbers here in the uk are just starting to take off, my yellow courgettes get bigger every time i look at them, and my aubergines are now taking excellent shape !

phillip if you have soil, daylight and water it is easy, i taught myself last year so it must be !

Re: LOOK at the size of THAT!

We've managed to grow 2 grape vines, 2 orange tree's, a lemon tree, a Kumquat and our melons are coming on great.

And that's in a British climate!

Our greenhouse thinks it's on piece work.lol
