This visit I spent a lot of time looking at the outbreak of knitting that was all around the gardens.
Well I will tell you why, I have grown squashes over the pergola one year. It looked wondered, I duly collected up all the squashes at the end of the season. They were solid as rock and tasted of very little, I decided no matter how good they were looked they were not worth the effort.
Now I am reassessing and thinking if I accept it as an ornamental feature I will be much happier, except I would worry about growing food for ornament which is basically a wasteful thing to do when not everyone has enough to eat. I think it unlikely to happen after all.
