Courgette flower unfurling . . .
. . . and opening to attract bees and hover flies and butterflies . . .
A developing courgette almost ready to pick
The cucumber plant climbs heavenwards, twining its tendrils round supports
Is it a gherkin or a cucumber? This baby cucumber is not yet ready to be harvested.
One large courgette - almost a marrow! - and two small cucumbers.
Our courgette plants are bountiful and the courgettes grow very quickly. Left for just a day or two, young tender courgettes soon mature.So, at the moment, it's courgettes with everything - raw in salads, roasted, stir-fried, curried . . . I could pickle some. I wonder if I could make courgette jam??
