Our first harvest. (However small)


Big fanfare!

Last night, we ate from our own garden.

(Insert trumpet fanfare)

The weather seems to have turned a corner recently and the courgettes are producing fruit like it’s a fashion statement, so last night we sat out in our garden and ate courgettes which had grown on Colin (remember Colin?)

We cut them as ribbons and sautéed them with some garlic and served it with a tomato and mozzarella salad (using our own basil from the kitchen window ledge).


It’s not earth shattering I know, but it was super exciting for us.

I felt like a real gardener getting to cut the first courgette from the plant and getting to use my gardening knife which Kate had bought me for just this occasion.


So there we have it… Courgette and basil… Home grown.

From our garden (which is looking great)
