Well, the heat of the last week has paid dividends; and I’m stuck into harvesting courgettes in good order. I’ve gone for Tristar, so I’m getting pale green, yellow, and classic dark green fruits. Seems an abundance of pale green at the mo, and as the experienced squash fans will know, if you leave them any time they grow from courgette to blimp, just as your back is turned.
Also managed to start picking the rocket, so I’ve planted more to keep me fed this summer, and the beetroots. Roasted, with rocket (!) and some squishy goats cheese I think. Everything is coming up big time. Just to show you, here are two pictures: the kale etc 2 weeks ago:
And here they are yesterday. Amazing, and one of the reasons I’m really enjoying this.
The tomatoes have made similar progress, so I’ve pinched out as many side shoots as I can find (love the smell of tomato plants, let alone the taste of tomatoes), and as recommended I’m trying to keep off the potatoes (now flowering), until the requisite 90 days have passed. It’s worse than the 2 weeks wait!
