There are still one or two squash flowers around brightening the place up on a dull windy day which really does feel like the first day of Winter.

KT left a post to say this picture reminded her of traditional Japanese confectionary. I have just noticed that she has included a link. They really are very beautiful and well worth a look. You can find them here.Posted by Picasa

Hi Mike,
I have been ejoying yet more of your wonderful photos.
Which one do I like best? it is so hard to choose but the squash flower is superb.
I really should be more adventerous with squashes, butternut and turks turban are about my limit so far but seeing your crop this year is an inspiration I shall explore more varieties for next year.

Bye the way your raspberry compote freezes very well - if you can get it past the fridge that is.
Keep up the good work.
Bye for now.

Hi Beryl, thanks for your comment. We have liked squashes ever since I first brought a Butternut home from Tesco many years ago never having seen one before.

They have become a traditional part of our Christmas dinner along with Jerusalem Artichokes.

We do freeze the compote occasionally - it's good to have a reminder of good things in the depths of Winter. (Didn't get round to it this year though as no room in the freezer but have just got a lovely new one with loads of space so next year we will be well prepared if it isn't already full of Courgettes & Runner Beans!)

All the best, Mike
