My butternut plants are doing very well in our vegetable garden. They are growing beyond their allocated area, climbing over the rest of the garden. The flowers remind me of Seymour from the Little Shoppe of Horrors. Some butternut have started to take shape but thwre is no need to plan a menu yet as they are only about 4cm in length. Growing the garden from seed is a test in patience, but everyday offers something delightful. For example, finding the angels singing under the shade of the giant leaves.
