One of the early summer crops we can seem to grow with relative ease are Courgettes. They are prone to the usual bugs and diseases that most broad-leaf veg attract, but I find as long as the leaves are never watered directly, and the weakened/dying/infected leaves and stems are hacked off every week, then we can harvest enough for ourselves.






So often I forget to check them, and they end up rather large, but never mind, they are usually made into large ‘boats’ and roasted in the oven stuffed with a mix of courgette, tomato and onion and spices.

    Our water comes from the sky. The leaves get wet and we had some mildew. I took the risk of chopping the affected leaves when I saw some new growth. I had no clue it was good or bad and now we have new fruit appearing. If we’re lucky they’ll have good enough weather to be successful.
