Our plan was to grow all the decorative squashes for our wedding decorations. We ordered a pack, sowed them, and protected them from the cold, wet Summer in the greenhouse. We planted 10, 5 grew, 3 vines flowered a total of 20-some flowers, 8 fruited and 3 made it to the ‘mature’ stage before the vines died back. Sigh about the short growing season here in Scotland, but the story did give us a giggle! At least some of our garden was represented at the wedding, much like our garden was represented at our Civil Partnership!
