My First Courgette Plant!

Courgette plant

This year in my tiny garden I am growing courgettes (zucchini) for the first time.

One solitary seedling was planted in mid May and this is what it looks like today.

Take a closer look and you’ll see at least five green protrusions – all different sizes and shades. One of them even looks like it’ll be ready to eat next week! Looking forward to that.

Now I just need to find some recipes . . .

UPDATE (15 Aug): Eight lovely courgettes eaten so far and my solitary plant is the plant that just keeps giving – there’s at least four more coming along nicely. It conveniently readies the next courgette several days after the last, so they’re not all ready at once.

I will definitely be saving a space for Mr Courgette next year!
