An invasion

We've been invaded from next door. This pumpkin plant has grown through the fence, I assume from their compost heap. I hope they don't cut it off as it will save me planting my pumpkins this year.

The flower is very similar to the cucumber flowers that I hope to be seeing on my cucumber trellis in a few weeks time, as it should be, they're in the same family.

The vegetable patch is in the early stages yet but everything is springing to life. It's weird living here. You can grow most vegetables in winter, which is summer in the northern hemisphere. When it's summer here it's too hot for a lot of things. I end up growing vegetables in the same months that I would have in England, but in the winter.
