The Patty Pan Squashes have landed. In my garden at least. I love this photo. It’s an optical illusion because they look huge but in actual fact they are only about 4 inches across. They’re cute and oh so snowy white. I love the way that they just appear. One day they are tiny little flower-like buds then next day they are this size. Perfect size.
If you want a nice ‘talking point’ plant then this is your baby. Everyone – and I mean everyone – that comes into the garden comments on them. Most don’t know what they are, the others know what they are, have grown them, want to grow them again or remember them from when they were a kid. They are a very memorable plant. And look great in the basket on the kitchen work top. Use them like Courgettes or Zucchini if you will. The smaller the better.
