One Plant Living: Day 30: 2017
The snails ate my first two courgette plants this season so the annual courgette glut is a little late getting under way this year. I've gone yellow this year. Picked the first two today. It pays to check daily as they grow so fast. One minute a courgette the next a marrow. Last year I discovered that courgette is actually really nice in salads grated raw. Freshly picked they have a subtle but sweet taste.
Just did a quick google Jamie Oliver has 47 courgette recipes so might need to expand the repertoire this year to keep the kids from groaning. I love a courgette fritter but seems the novelty has already worn off for them!
