On the subject of kids gardening, my son who is now 18 was always keen on growing things in the garden when he was little. When he started growing up and other things became more interesting he stopped being interested in the garden, but now we have a house with a large garden and when he's around he shows a keen interest in the garden and what we are growing and harvesting (doesn't doing any digging though!).  So what I'm saying is even if kids 'go off the boil' in the teenage years I think if an interest in the garden and growing is nurtured at a young age it stays with you for the rest of you life, and that can't be a bad thing can it?

Great, thanks for that I will give them a feed today.

Yellowing courgettes

We moved last autumn.  The veg patch was covered with black plastic but on peeling it back we found that the previous owners had had a bonfire on part of the patch.  Anyway dug the lot over at the start of the season and all is well at the moment apart from my courgettes.  I planted four plants, two are fine but two have yellow leaves.  I don't know if it has anything to do with the bonfire (they are planted roughly in that area), or whether they need a good feed.  Any ideas anyone?  What should I feed them with?  They have been in about 3-4 weeks and are growing.  Haven't a clue if anything was grown on the land last year and if so what.
