Oh how well we will dine tonight!

Having been away for a few short days when the sun was shining and returned to rain, I was unsure what I would find in the garden. Rampant slugs, most likely. But, joy of joys, I was able to cut three courgettes. For us this year, this counts as a glut, a veritable glut I tell you!

OK summer, all is forgiven.

    Are they supposed to be that shape? I’m thinking of growing some next year.

    You survived the Basingstoke roundabouts then! (nightmare)
    Nice courgettes – I like the round ones best.

    Thanks for the brill idea of veg-box gifts. Just come back from a weekend away and our friends were delighted with the ‘Sunday lunch veg box’ that we brought them. It’s to great to be able to share your home grown produce.

    Lottie Wannabe – Hi! Yes, the round ones are a variety called Rondo di Nizza and are particularly nice stuffed (there’s a recipe somewhere on the recipe pages here for that), but I do have a normal straight variety too. Courgettes are a must as far as I am concerned.

    Hi Karen – Ah yes, Basingstoke was fab. Well, visiting my Dad was fab, Basingstoke was just Basingstoke!

    Lisa B – How lovely. Glad I inspired you to your Sunday lunch veg box – sounds really great.
