After the relentless attacks of the slugs last year, I had decided that this year, I would keep my squash family indoors. So in early spring I sowed pumpkin, butternut squash, and courgette. And they came up! And they became sizeable plants, without any slugs doing considerable damage. And I also managed to keep the cat from murdering them. And it's still early, and none of them have come into flower yet, let alone fruit, but things are looking good! When it gets warmer I will have to make sure I water them enough, as the conservatory can get quite warm. But if I manage that I have faith this year will turn out better than last year considering growing my own vegetables in the squash family!
