SUPPORT

I was rather concerned that the biggest squashes might fall off, that the stem would break under their weight so I decided to rig up some support.

All it needed was a piece of old green netting for the big round one and two old onion nets and all is we.. It would be a shame if I lost them now, after all the effort….

FEEDING

Despite the very dry period my monsters seem to be getting bigger. One of the Zucca da marmelata fruits increased so much I had to create a support for it, I don’t want to lose it too soon, before being fully ripe. I hope it’ll hold it.

There is one more monster but I don’t think I shall try to do anything, hope for the best.

My very own Maltese pumpkin – well, one of a few – let’s see what he’ll manage.
