I've been away five days, and I did post someone on minimal garden duties, but the courgettes proved too demanding. I picked the above this morning from my two plants, and they are still sitting on the bench while I muse what to do with them. I think a couple can go to the chooks, and I'll make up a batch of soup with the others. I don't like the thought of making soup in this hot sticky weather, but once made, luke warm courgette soup is actually quite nice. I should try it chilled.
The sweet cherry tomatoes have been well picked (and appreciated) in my absence, but I did manage to discover some other tomatoes which were hiding amongst my very overgrown vines.
Now off to investigate diseases in vineyard (not happy), and if time I'm keen to start hauling out the garlic which has well and truly flopped over.
