I have been so pleased with my courgettes this year. I have grown "Defender" for several years having been plagued with mosaic virus for so long. This variety seems to be highly resistant. Lots and lots of courgettes this year with my tender loving care and bucketfuls of manure tea - yum!
I was born 20 yards from our allotment. My parents used to 'dig for victory' and never got out of the habit. I grew up on an allotment, so growing veggies is a way of life. I am also qualified as a dog behaviourist and I have set up my own business, www.blackdogdna.com
