Such a nice surprise after being away from the patch for a couple of days . . . my teeny tiny first courgette! Although at the moment it would make little more than a mouthful for a passing mouse, I feel such a sense of pride at the first sign that I have grown more than just a collection of leaves. I must at this point make acknowledgement of my wonderful partner who has played such a vital part in this little project. The patch would not have got this far without his DIY skills in building the frame and bunny proofing the whole affair, without which I am sure I would have nothing more than a collection of stalks and some fat rabbits! Thank you!
