We’ve been asked by a few people - “How many courgettes plants do you have"?”. When I answer about 15, there have been a few gasps. You’re mad, they say, you will be living on them for months. But when you sew your seeds you have no idea how many will grow, but they all did and now the plants are huge. One thing we have learnt is that we planted them to close together plus they are smothering the peppers and beans, so a bit of trimming has been required. What's nice is that they're all different so hopefully we wont get bored with them. We’ve been given lots of recipes from a friend to help us along, plus I’ve made courgette chutney, courgette gratin, cooked them on the BBQ and given some to friends. If anyone has yummy recipes to share, I’d love to try them.
