I grew courgettes called "Romanesco" this year as it said on the packet that they are one of the best tasting. Never again! They are the blandest courgette I have ever tasted.
You can put grated courgettes into cakes and they are nice and moist, you could probably do it with marrows too. I add grated courgette, chopped apple, ginger, lemon zest, cinnamon and sultanas to a basic cake mix.
I have a maximum minimum one which is invaluable, need to know how cold it was in the night and how hot it is during the day. Got it in a supermarket in France several years ago.
Mrs. Garden I usually find my secateurs in winter when the beds are bare! I have 4 pairs, 2 are missing at the moment Of course, it could be OH!
I'll confirm that honeysuckle can be cut hard back. Trouble is, I don't always get round to it then there is a messy load of dead black twigs in the middle.
Thank you punkdoc.
Mrs. G the colour of the salvia with the white is gorgeous.
I know it's morning, but just want to say that Dove has put the perfect avator for Verdun on Morning Forkers, so go and have a look.
That's right, Boss Hogg didn't have a dog, but Rosco Coltrane owned Flash.
I have a Vitex agnus castus on a South facing wall, so it is sheltered. It is in fact frost hardy, but may need winter protection. Though I don't protect mine and it's stayed alive through the cold Dordogne winters, up to -17°. It's lovely.
Round shallots are what I use. I buy sets in Spring, but actually I haven't bought any for a bit as they keep so well I just plant some I grew the year before. That doesn't work with onions, only shallots.
I thought "oooh goody, it's like a quiz", but Fidgetbones has given all the answers I would have given.
