It's almost a gardening tradition to plant courgettes and other cucurbits in the first week of June. I love planting courgettes, pumpkins and squashes when the weather warms up. I get a bit twitchy in May as the plants get larger, their leaves
off in summer.
Chives, which refuse to grow in my shady garden; I miss them in potato salads.
Borlotti beans, for drying and storing in jars, then adding to winter stews. Butternut squash and several varieties of pumpkin, for hearty autumn soups
