...insert obscure reference here...
This flower reminds me of a lily. And it does look like something I'd like to grow as an ornamental. But, I love squash, so I could benefit in more than one way. I don't think I have a good place to grow veggies, though. I do grow tomato plants in pots on my deck, however. Just not sure about the squash. I like the photo, though! Your blog is interesting, too. I like the fact that you 'split' your personalities between 2 blogs! That's really creative, and clever:) Jan/ThanksFor2Day
They're lovely looking plants. The UK commercial crop failed in many places this year because of the lack of bees to pollinate them.
My first plant I grew at 8 was a zuchinni plant and it is what inspired my love of growing a garden. I daydream of growing vegies again. The photo is awesome too by the way
Pretty??'Yum! would be a lot more appropriate. Had some battered deep fried zucchini flowers at a Dee Why beachside cafe over the weekend... Yum!!
Thanks For 2 Day Thanks, Thanks! :) I actually was wondering if one of these would be happy in a large pot I have - perhaps I should try it and let you know! I think if tomatos can produce for you on the balcony, then you could be very happy with a Zuke as well - Heres hoping your balcony has room for more!! Barkfoot Its frightening about the bees, and I have heard similar stories from around the world - we had all better learn how to pollinate our own, eh?Melanie What a cool first plant?! (Mine was a marigold) A seedling black jack zuke is pretty cheap at most garden centers, if you have a pot in a sunny spot somewhere, maybe you could have a go - still plenty of time left this summer! Thank you :)Young Werther I think they started eating the flowers because if you have several plants, you can actually drown in zukes. LOL Ive never had the flowers - perhaps I should try them sometime, Cheers Mate!
Thank's for your great article. The flower of the picture is very beautiful . I like it
Oh this looks like a star. I knew it was a squash family flower immediately.
Solusiplus Glad you enjoyed it, thank you!Ces Star shaped = squash? Cool, I will watch for that! Its sort of like 'square stem = mint family' nature never ceases to amaze me!
