poisonous courgettes

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 07:16

It does sound to me as if there's been some cross-fertilisation at the seed producers' place - with a lot of different varieties being grown nowadays it can happen.  Although the seed producers are usually careful to grow their plants at a distance from other similar varieties, there's no accounting for what the general public might be growing in their gardens and which bees might be visiting.  

I do think you ought to notify  Fothergills so that they're aware that their processes are flawed. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all 

Gorgeous here - 18.4C at 6am!    Shame I have to go into the city on the bus to get my hair cut at midday, but it I don't I'll look like a shaggy sheep on Saturday and Panda won't recognise me when I meet her off the train!

David Spikes - you were talking about nectarine recipes - have you tired this one?  It's absolutely wonderful!  http://mainlybaking.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/stone-fruit-yogurt-cake.html Huge favourite in this house   It works for peaches, and plums too.

If you explain it nicely to them I'm sure they will - why didn't I think of that?

Yes it is - there will be improvements before too long - they're working on getting it right.  

In the meantime, if I've got photos on my phone I email them to myself, save them on my laptop and then post them - but if you don't have a laptop or pc  you could email them to another forum member and they could post them for you.
