I took this photo at the weekend – since then this little Courgette plant has pumped out a further 4 courgettes. We can’t keep up. I’ve tried giving them away at work (minor success) and I’ve tried making courgette and chocolate cake (minor disaster), but ultimately we still have too many. And to think that I had 13 courgette plants to begin with! They all died one by one. Some from over watering, some from sunburn, some from wind burn, some from just pure neglect. But thank heavens I neglected them because if I hadn’t we would be drowning in a sea of green, spongy vegetables by now, and mtp would be no more. Sniffle.
