Scraps

Evening.

Aldi are selling slug tape at only 2.49 ish. Much cheaper than it was at the beginning of summer so have bought some for next year. No idea if it works though as I favoured the cheaper 'torch at midnight hunt for snails and slugs'. Could almost hear them crunching away some nights. It worked though as everything survived, although it's been so much dryer this year. Beginners luck.

 Look...
 
Daddy courgette, mummy courgette and baby courgette.
 
Perspective on a photo not great but baby is quite big and mummy and daddy resemble marrows. Will have to eat the bloody things now. Well baby did get chopped in half for dinner but most of him is languishing in the roasting tin. Courgette overload now for real.
 
 
Dessert was odd tonight had forgotten to serve the French beans and was so dismayed to waste stuff I have grown 'poor son' grabbed the pan and ate his way through them while I had a few in an ice cream bowl.
 
 
Last scrap.
Just watched a documentary on beeb 2 Penguin Post Office. Brilliant and recommend it....if you like penguins.

    1. How can courgettes be in a flower show? Never been to one mind, terrible hayfever.

  2. I have 2 courgette plants, both have only put out male flowers. Lots of salady things in pots and troughs though and the herbs are loving this heat. The lavender is spectacular.

    1. That happened with my friend and is now happening here. My lavender has a constant low level buzz as the bees work their way through it. Very satisfying.

  3. If you get too fed up with courgettes grate some and put them in a cake instead of carrots or chop/grate and put in the freezer to use in stews over winter. That's what I did when I was given a marrow last year.
    Pam I have only male flowers too

    1. Thanks I'll try the freezing as a shame to waste them. I'll look up cake recipes as well.

  4. Chop some and put the them in a tin of tomatoes with some grated cheese on top. Makes a nice lunch. Have a good weekend.
