Awesome update thank you for sharing have a blessed day
This year we gave away Tromboncino courgette seeds as part of our community veg growing project. They’re a big hit.
Now Eleni, above, is no novice grower. She knows her veg. She’s grown this summer squash before. But this year she’s gone wild and let it grow and grow. She’s knocked twice to invite me round to see it.
She knows it’s past eating, but she doesn’t care. She just likes seeing it grow.
Meanwhile, neighbours next door shared a splendid meal last night with said vegetable. They sliced it with a potato peeler into thin, flat, pasta-like strips and when slightly cooked, mixed it with tomatoes, garlic, spicy mini meatballs made from chorizo sausages and some oricchiette (ear shaped) pasta. It looked amazing and tasted delicious.
There’s nothing like growing your own.
