    Tonight I'm having my very first courgettes out of the garden!! Woop woop!!

    They are just the right size for picking, I've got yellow ones, green ones and ball ones. I'm having pasta tonight and making courgette and pea soup for tomorrow's lunch.

    Very excited girlie today, I love my veg patch :D

    It's lovely to pick your own and then straight in the pot. Taste fantastic. I picked 2 on Tuesday and we had them in an omlette for tea, I was sooooo proud you would have thought I'd won the lottery. Enjoy them and keep growing your own.

    Oh I will for sure! This is my third year and each year I grow more and more things and the excitement of picking the first (and successive) crops never ceases!!

    Growing veg rocks! Well done you!

    I have lettuce in the front (which are being eaten by other creatures) and some beans. I have a tiny amount of soil in which to grow stuff but I'm doing my best! LOL!

    Home grown food just tasted the best - whether it's lunch, dinner or tea ;)

    I have some tomatoes on my plants, but they're still green at the moment.

    My runner beans are twirling up the poles but not flowering yet. I got a late start... but oh wow, I love going out there with my pan and picking exactly the amount I need for dinner, cutting them up and cooking them straight away. They blow the shop-bought ones out of the water!!

    OOh, I am jealous, every year I grow courgettes, but not this year because of the move :(

    Mind you, it seems to be a great year for the veggies this year, the few bits I did plant (to help the veg patch look good for the house sale lol!) are doing well, and I might get 4 or 5 french beans in tonights tea - along with three strawberries (there will be a fight for those) and as much parsley as I fancy under the sea bass ...

    enjoy those courgettes :)

    I was late sowing my courgettes, they're nowhere near ready.And I'm the only person I know who has never had a glut of them! But I harvested 42 bulbs of garlic at the weekend, and the mangetout take some keeping up with. I have salad leaves, cos lettuce, spring onions, red and white onions,shallots, spinach, pak choi, broccoli, french beans, runners, 4 lots of potatoes. Aubergines, peppers, tomatoes and 6 sorts of chillis, oh and carrots! Growing veg is my new obsession!
