Growing apace

The mange-tout pods have now dried out and I've taken out the seeds to store ready for next year.

It's been a really good crop this year and I've just about managed to keep up with the eating of it.

 I'm not doing so well with the courgettes though. Having been away for a week there are some quite large ones. I've had courgette, tomato and onion soup and sliced up a big courgette baked with savoury rice, tomatoes and cheese. I'll keep wading my way through them and will give some away as now the runner beans are starting to grow at an alarming rate!

I've just eaten the first 2 bunches of the grapes today. I know what's for afters for me for the next umpteen weeks.


PS Thank you for all your get well wishes. The bruises are changing colour nicely. We're on yellow at the moment!

PPS Thrift D - I'll let the seeds dry out a bit more before I post some on to you.


  1. Glad to hear to are on the mend x

  2. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Have you thought of chutney for the courgettes, or you could let them grow on and have stuffed marrow.
