Another two chokos in today...this time one was a white choko...not seen them before.

I also planted leeks - see how they go.

Good on you Daniel, White Choko sound interesting how many is that you planted dont they spread far and wide, the chooks will probably love them and the neighbours and the family.

Glad you got some leek seedlings they will grow well over the Winter though could bolt in the Spring
Keep us posted about the leeks as I may plant some seedlings next year if yours grow well.. thumbs-up

Hmmm, I thought I responded to this post already..oh well, must be losing it!

I have planted 4 all up so far and have another 2 or 3 to plant. Mary-Anne I am planting more than I need under normal circumstances but really trying to outsmart the possums. If they all grow to maturity then one day there must be a point at which possums cannot possibly eat any more!

Leeks - I will keep you posted. Probably too late in season but there they were on the shelf at the nursery. Smile

If they do not then I will give chokos away...I am probably concerned they or other critters will eat the vine as the do the passionfruit vine.

Just checking folks - sneaked in and hoped Telstra people don;t notice....then again they would have to be working to do so; therefore i figure I am fairly safe!

Can anyone tell me when to pick yellow button squash?

They seem about the right size but still connected to plant and some have flower still attached

Dan, you can pick them whenever you want at whatever size you want... like zucchini. I like mine about 2" across or a bit smaller but they can get huge and tough if you leave them. Don't worry about the flower, it can be knocked off easily, they don't fall of the stems by themselves.

So far we have had about 20 of the little fellas. Big leaves for tiny fruit - but Kerrie is enjoying them. We'll do them some more. Must check Jul planting guide!

I grew them years ago and used to pick them when they where about 3 inches across Rolling Eyes
