Watch out for the caterpillars of cabbage white butterflies - they'll chomp their way through the leaves double quick.  I take them off and put them out for the birds.

I've got some of the red ones in pots on the terrace - they looked great yesterday evening so I thought I'd show you what you've got coming

Dinner time

Philippa, this is a recipe I've adapted from one by Karadecoolaid on the Wildfood Forum.

Slice the courgettes in rounds and sautée in butter. Season with s & p. Add a few fresh sage  leaves, sliced into slivers. Once the courgettes begin to brown, remove and set aside. Blind bake a pastry crust for about 20 minutes at 350° until barely browned. Dry toast a handful of slivered almonds and scatter on the bottom of the pastry crust. Cover with the courgette slices.Top with a generous amount of Gruyére cheese (optional) . Place in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve hot or cold.

And lots more courgette recipes here http://www.wildfood.info/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=10375

Supper this evening will be tagliatelle with sliced yellow courgettes, french beans and cherry tomatoes softened in olive oil with garlic and herbs.  

The only ingredients from the shop will be the pasta and the toms - ours aren't ready yet. 

Here it is

Absolutely Pdoc 

As an artist, I enjoy exploring colour, texture and form in my garden - but to do it successfully I attempt to embrace the science too - it's all fascinating 

HELLO FORKERS!

The Oxford Dictionary's definition of 'science' is ".... The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment: "

Isn't that what gardeners do every day?

My grapevine

Have you thinned the bunches?  This should be done when the grapes are small.
