Everyone knows what happens to courgettes when you go away for 2 weeks on holiday! They turn into marrows! Someone told me a story last week as we discussed gardening over the breakfast table. In their small town they grow so many courgettes (zucchini) that they just can't get rid of them. If you leave your car unlocked anywhere, instead of having something stolen from inside... you return to find your car filled with zucchini!..
While I was sailing across the Atlantic ocean,
Strolling down Broadway,
Looking out from the top of the Empire State Building..
My garden was growing! This beautiful crop of Noir du Crimee
beefsteak tomatoes were just perfect! We enjoyed them this afternoon sliced thickly and drizzled with good olive oyl, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper! yum!
This is by no means all that is going on down on Matron's allotment, but this is just a taster of things to come..
Yellow squash, squash Delicata, black forest courgettes, Noir du Crimee tomatoes, and chocolate cherry tomatoes.
