I like to try something different every growing year. This time I have found a new varitey of Yellow climbing courgette
called Shooting Star
. I find that climbing courgettes can really save space in a small patch. My old, reliable favourite is a climbing courgette called Black Forest
. Let's see if this new one from Thompson & Morgan lives up to expectations.,
Meanwhile in the greenhouse my Dalizia cucumbers
are enjoying life. This is a small, light green cucumber with a lovely taste. If I can keep the red spider mites at bay - these should be good.
These lovely Grandpa's Butterhead lettuce
have a beautiful red colour on the leaves. If I can keep the slugs (and the neighbourhood cats) away - these are hearting up nicely.
and finally, not everything that grows is something that I planted. This potato is growing out of an opening in my kitchen compost bin. I will give it a few more weeks to see what develops. It should have some lovely, fertile compost in there so I am making sure it is watered well.
